The Little League ball field at Kiwanis Park is going to have an artistic uplift this summer after a teenage girl guide has proposed a service project.
During the committee of the whole meeting held Tuesday at city hall, Tashina Matilpi told city council she wants to make various collages out of painted plywood that will contain segments created by Sparks up to Rangers in Williams Lake.
“I want to take pieces of plywood that will have pictures and inspirational sayings on them and put them up on the fence,” Matilpi said, adding she’d like the pieces to stay up from May 26 until the end of October.
The project will fulfill some of the requirements toward Matilpi’s Canada Cord in the Guide program.
All the plywood would be primed, cut into specific shapes, painted, and coated.
Council unanimously approved the idea and told Matilpi the project would be a nice addition to the park.
“Thank you for bringing this to our attention,” Mayor Kerry Cook told Matilpi.
The matter is expected to be brought up at a future council meeting, as council members cannot officially make decisions at a committee of the whole meeting.
