Mosaic celebrates 25 years of service

GE Aviation donates about $2K to CASA

Staff members from the Vigo County CASA office accepted a recent invitation from GE Aviation representative Tony Urbanski to tour the local facility. Staff saw each phase of the manufacturing process including cutting, welding, boring, etching, treating, washing and shipping nickel-alloy and titanium engine components for commercial aircraft, military contracts and even for the 2016 Olympics.

At the end of the tour, Urbanski, along with plant managers Tom Bradley and Lori Smith, presented Vigo County CASA Kids with a check of nearly $2,000 to help fund the program’s annual awareness and fundraising event.

In 2011, GE Aviation collected donations for children served by Vigo County CASA volunteers that helped provide children with gifts at Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Company employees took a shopping list for each child attending and purchased gifts. Employees donated more than $5,000.

Marshall, Ill.

Chamber to form Walldogs committee

The Marshall Area Chamber of Commerce is forming a committee of volunteers looking to get involved in a community project. An informational meeting to learn about Marshall becoming a Walldogs community will be at 6 p.m. CDT on Oct. 23 at the Marshall Chamber of Commerce Building, 708 Archer Ave.

Walldogs are a group of sign and mural artists from across the globe. The tradition of painting wall advertisements is historic. Evidence of this can be seen in “ghost signs,” still evident on many buildings. The painters of these signs were often called Walldogs.  

Along with the title of Walldog, today’s mural artists have also adopted many other traditions that show in their work, from the colors they use to the design styles they practice, these murals capture a sense of nostalgia and historic significance. The Walldog movement began in Allerton, Iowa, in the summer of 1993, hosted by Nancy Bennett. That meet was the first official Walldog meet.  

Walldogs have been all over Illinois painting murals, most recently in Arcola. To learn more or see pictures of their work visit the Walldogs website at www.thewall
