Here's what you do: 1) TAKE A SELFIE at the Village of Rochester Hills. 2) UPLOAD it to either Facebook or Instagram @thevorh. 3) Add #loveyourselfie #thevorh #lovethevorh 4) All photos must be uploaded by February 28, 2015

5) The winner plus one gets Noodles for a year!

The Village of Rochester Hills and the City of Rochester Hills would like to pause...and take the rest of January to reminisce about the memorable year our community had in 2014. Our City was named in the Top 10 cities to live in 2014! We shared some amazing events and supported many charitable organizations in 2014. As we plan and get prepared for 2015 – we wanted to have some “plain-ole” fun.

As community supporters of The Salvation Army, Meadow Brook Hall and Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, as well as the Village of Rochester Hills are combining forces to create an antipipated viral social campaign entitled #ShareTheMostGood. The Salvation Army's well known saying 'Doing the Most Good' is what sparked the creative idea and brought the community partners together. "We all partner with The Salvation Army for the holidays and we wanted to create more impact and awareness" stated Marketing Director of the Village of Rochester Hills, Shelleen McHale. "Teaming up was a way to show collaboration and community relationships in a new light, while we #SharetheMostGood."

Novomber 12 through December 31, 2014 the partners are asking our community, guests and visitors of their establishments to join in the movement. It is a simple way to show support while visiting three well-known businesses in the community. It is simple.  One simply has to take a picture giving to The Salvation Army from Meadow Brook Hall, Royal Park Hotel or the Village of Rochester Hills. Photo submissions should be captioned, “This is what GIVING looks like @,” and include #ShareTheMostGood; tagging one of the participating venues for a chance to win one of three grand prizes that include: a behind-the-scenes tour of historic Meadow Brook Hall; a one-night stay and breakfast for two at the Royal Park Hotel and a $150 gift card to the Village of Rochester Hills.
