Dark or light is Summer green.
Lime and apple to be seen,
And much nuance in between-
Beauty found in subtle bling.

Paint the Town will be Aug 4-5 in Columbia

By Tiffany Collins

As a community project, the City of Columbia will be sponsoring the second annual "Paint The Town." Sidewalks will have chalk designs around the Public Square and in the areas immediately off the Square.

'We would like families, businesses, churches and organizations to come to town and paint a square," said Mayor Pamela Hoots.

People will be asked to do their chalk design(s) on Wednesday and Thursday, August 4 and 5, 2021. The designs will be available for the public to view that weekend. In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled.

If you would like a square of sidewalk, please call City Hall at 270-384-2501 and you will be assigned a section of sidewalk.

Mayor Pam will be sponsoring a local gift basket to the winner. The City wants this to be a community event. The sidewalks will be for public view for the second annual "Truck It Up" event, scheduled for August 6, 2021.
