The McLeese Lake General Store building has a new mural to greet locals and tourists alike

McLeese Lake General Store gets facelift

McLeese Lake looks a little brighter these days with the addition of a new mural painted on the side of the McLeese Lake General Store.

The downtown core of McLeese Lake looks a little brighter these days with the addition of the wonderful new mural painted on the north side of the McLeese Lake General Store building.

The McLeese Lake Recreation Commission would like to sincerely thank the Central Cariboo Arts & Culture Society for the $800 grant to paint this mural.

It has made the entrance to McLeese Lake from the north much more attractive, has added to all the other beautification which has been completed and has given tourists more reason to stop and visit our small community.

The mural was completed in early May and could not have come to fruition without the support and help of Area D Director, Deb Bischoff, the City of Williams Lake and several volunteers who include Rob Swaan, Howie Chamberlin, Fred McCallum, Jared Kishkan and Gordon Kolcun.

A total of 42 volunteer hours went into installing the mural.

The society would like to send out a huge thank you to the artist Chelsea Kuhn from Quesnel who painted the mural.

The murals of McLeese Lake not only brighten up our community but also the pride of all local residents. Please come and visit and see all of the beautification projects. We know you will agree.
