Local artist seeks assistance in refurbishing mural

I plan to donate my time and efforts on refurbishing the "Welcome to Lyons Shopping District" mural at the corner of Main Avenue and North Second Street at 9:30 a.m. Saturday (rain date will be 9:30 a.m. Saturday June 29).

I'm asking the public to help me out with this project. If you would be willing to donate your time and efforts with this project it would be very welcome. Items needed include paint brushes, rollers, roller handles, paint drop cloths, gloves, face masks, sunscreen, brooms or ladders.

Sheralyn Bartels and the Lyons Business and Professional Association are donating the paint, and the scaffolding is furnished by Tom Koester, Patrick Webb and the Catholic Historical Center. For more information, email dickinsongreg94@yahoo.com or call (563) 219-8414. Thank you for your time and consideration regarding this request.
