The annual banner painting for Uptown Port Alberni kicks off at Glenwood Centre

Glenwood Centre is full this weekend of people painting their feelings and ideas onto banners that will be hung in the Rotary Arts District, along Argyle Street, later this summer.

Individuals, families, friends and groups have signed up to paint banners and will be doing the painting part this Family Day weekend, from Feb. 8–11. The banner painting is a joint project between the Arrowsmith Rotary Club and City of Port Alberni Parks, Recreation and Heritage department.

For more information, stop down at Glenwood to watch, or call Echo Centre during regular business hours at 250-723-2181.
