The Land Between the Lakes mural was officially completed Monday, Oct. 24. Thank you to all of the organizations and volunteers who helped to make this project a success! Thank you to Noah Hawkes and all of the Culligan crew for being so helpful (especially Brandi who encouraged us to add the mermaid!). Thank you to Valspar, the Vitality Committee and Home Depot for donating materials. Thank you to the folks who primed the wall for us (you know who you are!) Thank you to the businesses who loaned us scaffolding: Barry Back and John from EZ Rentals. And a special thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who helped bring beauty to our community: Jackie Groeneweg, Leala Hall, Scot Kabrud, Sara Kabrud, Marci and Brooke Maier, Patrick Moore, Mariah Maras, Angie Hoffman, Janis Schewe, Larry Anderson and his granddaughter Katelynn, Lon Pogones and The Rock crew!
