Niagara Gazette — “If they’re doing positive things for the community we might be able to flip things around,” he said.
As for the kids, they’re just happy that they can do something that is good for the community yet still more exciting than picking up trash. Keilana Agee and Mathius Oliver, both seventh-graders at Gaskill, say they are excited to help.
“Niagara Falls can get boring to look at,” Keilana said. “There’s nothing to make it pop.”
Both say they’d like to continue to help clean up the city. Mathius says he would like to see less factories and manufacturing plants. One of them took over his favorite baseball diamond.
The kids along with Liberty members, Piccirillo, Lowe, Maslowski and others met at the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center on Saturday afternoon to begin painting and tracing silhouettes. They still have some work to do, but the mural is expected to be ready and on display in early February.
