This past week, several members of the Apopka History Mural planning team got together and completed the sanding and priming of the wood that our mural will be placed on. Now, once the wood has dried, we will be able to begin the process of painting and bringing the mural to life. While we are still prioritizing health and safety at this time, the mural planning team believes that if we continue to practice social distancing and keep our meetings small, then we can continue to meet and further the mural, even during this uncertain time.
