This fall, Point Marion added another piece of public art to the community. This mural, which was created by students participating in the “Arts in the Park” summer program in Morgantown, was mounted on the VFW building, which is adjacent to the future trail location. Prior to installation of the artwork, the VFW, George O’Neal Post 747 made major improvements to the side wall that included stabilizing it, adding a skim coat, and painting it. These improvements were supported in part by a mini-grant from the River Town Program. Production and installation of the mural was supported by mini-grants through the Rails to Trails Conservancy and the Trail Volunteer Fund.
You are invited to the River Town Program meeting and holiday party on Wednesday, December 4th at the Fredericktown Fire Hall, 831 Crawford Road. A business meeting will be held from 5:30-6:15, followed by a year-end celebration with drinks, hors d’ouevres and fellowship. Even if you haven’t participated in the program, please feel free to join us and talk about plans for next year with your neighbors. Please RSVP to Cathy McCollom by November 30th at 814.395.9139 (office), 814.521.3520 (mobile), or email@example.com.
