contributions to the United States and the world as we know it.

The mural will be located near the S.U.M. building, across from the bridge over the Great Falls.
Everyone is invited to enjoy a beautiful fall day with us as we paint, listen to music, poetry, stories of our history… the water.
Refreshments will be available.
