Paint the Towne Rolls On!

On August 30th we first wrote about our Paint the Towne project and we told you to stay tuned.....well here is the latest photo of the building.
Notice anything new?

Thanks to New Beginnings, and in particular their youth outreach worker Toni Soldevilla, the building is proudly displaying artwork painted by neighbourhood youth at the Ford City Funday event that was put on Sept 3rd by the Ford City Residents in Action.

Stop by sometime and have a look at the artwork. If your child was one of the artists maybe they can point out which part they did!

A big Ford City thank you goes to New Beginnings for helping us further beautify this building with your donations of time and materials.
