Check Out the Mural by Lauren Caddick from NCSU

About a year ago, we were thinking of getting a mural done on the shed wall that faces the YMCA kids playground. We thought of asking Service Raleigh to see if an NCSU art student would want to do a mural for us. We also asked the YMCA if they would be willing to sponsor the project. Without a moment of hesitation, I received an email from Douglas Andrew saying, "This sounds awesome.  We would love to sponsor the mural." The plan was to get the mural done on Service Raleigh, March 29th. However, as most of you know, it rained and some of the projects were cancelled. The mural being one of the projects.

Service Raleigh connected us with Lauren Caddick, a Park Scholar from Gastonia, North Carolina with a Bachelor of Art and Design and a minor in Film Studies from NCSU.

This past weekend, Lauren volunteered her Service Raleigh hours to do the mural. The mural is on the shed wall that faces the YMCA playground. Lauren has done a fabulous job with the mural. If you plan to check it out, walk up the steps of the garden, all the way to the shed and you will see it on the right side of the shed wall.

Thank you, Lauren and Alexander Family YMCA for all your support. We appreciate everything you do for us.

If you are a patron of the NCSU University Theater, then you may have seen Lauren in Game's a Foot. She played Madge Geisel.
