Mural painting will start next week!!!! A work crew from Multnomah County is coming on Wednesday to clean up the 76 Gas Station property, and then artists Antwoine Thomas and Addie Boswell will begin the design projection and painting on Thursday, July 26th. Because of this big project, we are going to have to cancel youth night for a couple of weeks. Sorry, everybody!
