The power of community was graciously demonstrated this past Saturday in the Miracle Manor neighborhood as the completed Miracle Manor Mural was celebrated. This great achievement clearly demonstrates the positive effects of neighbors coming together to make change in their community.
The mural was a coordinated effort between the Miracle Manor Neighborhood Association and Youth Empowerment Services Network.
On Saturday April 24, at the S & K Market, 2520 N. 15th Avenue (north of Grant Road), a dedication ceremony of this community mural was celebrated. Guests included neighborhood residents, Council Member Karin Uhlich, Mayor Bob Walkup, and the Tucson Police Department.
Supporters include the Arizona Commission on the Arts, Lego Children’s Fund America, Pima County Attorney’s Office, PRO Neighborhoods, and the Ward III Council Office, along with other individual and business donations.
On February 6, 2010 over 50 neighborhood residents and friends participated in “community paint day,” to kick off the mural painting. Participants included children and adults of all ages, including Council Member Karin Uhlich.
