The Twin Cities’ “Let’s Paint the Town” project is up and running, with the first work day scheduled for Saturday at the Huddleston building on Main Street in Fulton.
However, organizers hope to get a coat of primer on the building before Saturday so the building can receive two coats of paint and be finished Saturday. They are seeking volunteers who may be able to work on the primer coat Tuesday around 4-5 p.m. They estimate the work should take about an hour or less if four or five workers can help.
Anyone interested is asked to contact Twin Cities Chamber of Commerce executive director Thea Vowell at (731) 479-7029. A message may be left on the chamber office’s answering machine before or after hours or Mrs. Vowell’s mobile number is also listed at the end of the recorded message.
For volunteers who want to work Saturday, organizers plan to meet at 7:30 a.m. at the work site on Main Street in Fulton. They estimate it should be a short work day, with work possibly concluding before lunch time. They are asking for volunteers to call the chamber office in advance so enough supplies and refreshments will be available for everyone.
“It’s unbelievable the change in just one year to one small town and we’re excited to see all that we can accomplish in this year,” Mrs. Vowell said, encouraging residents to volunteer to participate.
