Volunteers still needed for Oneida Street mural project

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - The mural on the side of the City Liquors building is taking shape.

Lots of color was added Tuesday and volunteer painters are needed Wednesday as well.

Many organizations are involved, including the Parkway Center, the United Way and the Underground Cafe. The goal is to brighten up this area off Oneida Street, and a mural is a lot less likely to get tagged by graffiti.

An artist sketched the outline and volunteers are filling it in. All you need to do to volunteer is stop by.

"It's something the community can really take pride in, because they're the ones that are painting it," said Sara Spezzano, volunteer outreach coordinator. "We've been able to get a lot of kids who are walking by and they came and put their hand prints on the wall. We're turning them into little flowers."

The mural will serve as a backdrop for the Kemble Park project. Down the road there will be basketball hoops and an area for little kids to play.
