This beautiful mural of a stagecoach and horses was created by Chelsea Kuhn to beautify the community of McLeese Lake. It is on the wall of the Oasis Resort.

New mural beautifies McLeese Lake

The north end of McLeese Lake just got more attractive with the addition of a very striking mural.

The north end of McLeese Lake just got more attractive with the addition of a very striking mural.

Through the generosity of an arts and culture grant from the Cariboo Regional District and the extreme kindness of Rob and Jim Swaan of the Oasis Resort, the funds were given to Chelsea Kuhn who painted an exquisite picture of a stage coach and horses. Many residents have commented on how the painting has enhanced our community. It is very beautiful to look at. The project was initiated through the forethought of McLeese Lake Recreation Society president, Howie Chamberlin. He has been very instrumental in beautifying our community for which we are all truly grateful.

On the day the cheque was given to Chelsea, there were several people on hand for the presentation. They included McLeese Lake Recreation Society vice-president Fred McCallum and secretary Jackie King, Oasis Resort owner/donator Rob Swaan representing himself and his brother Jim, society president Howie Chamberlin, Cariboo Regional District Area D representative Deb Bischoff and Tom Schoen Area D representative for arts and culture, Rosemary and Graham Kelsey, president of Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society.

We are always happy to see Deb Bischoff in our community.  She has really involved herself in being part of our local events, for which we are grateful. We invite area residents to drive by and take a look at the mural, artifacts, flowers and plants and see what McLeese Lake residents get to enjoy every day.
