For the past 10 years, the community has been painting banners to beautify Port Alberni’s Arts District with some help from the Arrowsmith Rotary Club.
Larry McGifford of the Arrowsmith Rotary Club said that 2019 added more than 80 new banners.
Another banner paint-in took place earlier this month, with dozens participating to help beautify Argyle Street.
“This past Thursday we had banner painters waiting to get in at 4 p.m.,” said McGifford.
The Arrowsmith Rotary Club now offers banner painting to facilities and groups like Fir Park Village.
“It has really taken off, and this new location at Glenwood has afforded us a warmer and more spacious atmosphere,” said McGifford.
