The New Mission Terrace Improvement Association is holding a volunteer event to repaint the neighborhood's landmark monuments.
The New Mission Terrace Improvement Association is hosting a community re-painting event on Saturday to restore the monuments.
The idea came from Perez Construction’s Operations Manager Connor Skelly and NMTIA President David Hooper. This event will include free tacos, beverages and all the materials needed to restore the historic monuments for volunteers.
“It should be a great event to meet local neighbors and help beautify our neighborhood,” Skelly said.
“Show up at 10 o’clock and meet your neighbors,” Hooper said. “Think of Tom Sawyer and white washing the fence, if people have read Tom Sawyer. It’s people showing up, shrugging and saying 'I’ve got time to do this. I’ll make time to do this' and if they don’t, there’ll be some other opportunities.”
To participate, the association asks that those interested register.
It is being sponsored by many local organizations like Oceanview-Merced Heights-Ingleside Cultural Participation Project, Perez Construction, Helm Real Estate, Mis Pequenos Angelitos Daycare, Colores Painting Company and Marquez Painting.
