The City of Midland has recently commissioned two Bee City murals, after combining its status as a ‘Bee City’ and reputation as a mural community.

According to a news report from midlandtoday.ca, the first mural was installed in David Onley Park in the fall.

The second mural was completed by students and seniors and will be installed in Little Lake Park in spring 2022. The mural will be on display in the lobby at the Midland municipal office for visitors to enjoy during the winter.

Georgian Manor’s Melissa Ives and Alison Oldfield from King Place led the project.

Residents from the two retirement facilities who participated include Lloyd Weaver, Marion Taylor, Lyndsey Stacey, Helga Eidner, Marilyn Bumstead, Betty Gillham, Joyce Templeton, Anne Leblanc, Mary Graham, Heather Graham, and Norma Turner.

The high school and elementary school students who contributed to the mural include Bella Visco, Keiryn Ives, Liam Ives, Violet Ives, Raine Oldfield-Traviss, and Asher Totman.
