Four mini-bell towers have been constructed by Main Street volunteer Marc McGinn this winter. These towers were quickly purchased by four local businesses: Peoples Bank, Jefferson Telecom, Wahl-McAtee Tire, and Tri-County Lumber. Local artists have been contracted by these businesses to paint them.
- Tony Sims
- Matt Wetrich
- Bobby Egeland
The mini-bell towers will be placed between the pillar planters on each side of the downtown square by May 15. They will remain throughout the summer as another artistic attraction to the downtown. Following the project, the businesses will be able to keep their mini-bell tower.
This is a project of the Tower View Team and led by Debra McGinn and Roger Aegerter.
The four businesses and local artists are:
- Jefferson Telecom with artist Tony Sims painting
- Peoples Bank with artist Matt Wetrich painting
- Wahl-McAtee Tire with artist high school students painting
- Tri-County Lumber with artist Veda Sword painting
Here is a Facebook post of Veda Sword painting the tower for Tri-County.
