Church, Volunteers to “Paint the Town” in Downtown Marion

On Saturday, May 19, Downtown Marion will be partnering with APEX Church for their "Paint the Town" initiative. The day will begin with a free breakfast at 9:00am for volunteers at the church located at 162 West Center Street and will then be followed by a number of activities, including painting some of the building fronts in Downtown Marion, cleaning vacant store windows, planting flowers, pulling weeds, and the ongoing trash pickup.

“We’ll have a number of visitors come into our Downtown throughout the summer and we want to put our best foot forward,” explained Karen Herr, Downtown Marion Manager. “Think of it as sprucing up a house to put on the market or dressing for success. To attract more businesses to Downtown Marion, we need to sell ourselves, in part, through our appearance.”

Herr said more volunteers are always welcome and greatly appreciated and she says there will be something most everyone can do.
