A positive spirit of sprucing up the Cedaredge downtown was at work on Main Street last Wednesday.
A group of a half dozen or more friends of the Methodist Women's Thrift Store gathered to put a coat of fresh paint on their building.
The store reopened just last month after closing for some repair work on the interior.
The paint crew made a lot of progress on the job Wednesday. Some trim work and painting on the back part of the building was left for completion on another day.
The barn red color that was chosen harkens to the Surface Creek Valley's strong agricultural heritage.
The new paint coat replaces the former washed-out light blue color and makes a definite "here we are" statement.
The community bulletin board on the east wall of the building will be left in place, as it has been for many years.
There will be no closure of the Thrift Store during the outside work. Customers looking to either buy or donate items will find the store open during its regular business hours.blog comments powered by Disqus
