A Great Day In Lake City
Saturday, September 9th, Lake City Future First was joined by about 30 neighbors to dedicate artist Andrew Miller’s mural on the retaining walls of Value Village. LCFF funded the mural and looks forward to continuing to work with the Lake City Young Leaders, local business, Lake City artists and Andy to keep the momentum going on murals in Lake City. Thanks to the Double J Saloon for hosting the after party. Attendants were treated to some music, insights from Andy and his process and a dinasaur themed cake in honor of the mural motif.
Earlier that day – Lake City came out to celebrate the grand opening of the Lake City Skate Park. Our local hero, Kevin Hilman, who shepherded this project through over the course of about 9 years, was joined by Mayor Ed Murray, Parks Superintendent Jesus Aguirre, Dwight Preveo with Wells Fargo, members of the Virgil Flaim Family and Andrea Meyers with Children’s Home Society. The park was buzzing with youth of all ages and beyond showing their tricks and enjoying this incredible addition to the community.
LCFF presented Kevin with a special award at our August Community Conversation for his dedication and perseverance throughout the project. Kevin is a true example of the positive impact an individual can have on a community.
