Loveland, Ohio – “The names make it so powerful. It has been an inspiring project to work on. They will finish it on Tuesday. All the names are up that I have right now,” said the organizer of the “Angels by the Trail” mural, Stacey Lund.
The photo above and those below of the names, was taken this morning.
On June 11 at 11 AM there will be the ribbon cutting ceremony. The public is invited and also invited to submit more names.
Angels by the Trail will become a permanent, brightly painted memorial wall space that forever “Celebrates Loveland’s school-aged children whose lives were cut short.” The colorful 65′ X 20′ memorial is facing the bike trail and the Little Miami River near the Linda Cox parking lot on Karl Brown Way in Historic downtown Loveland. It is being painted on a previously bare industrial wall of the Eads Fence Company by artist David Uy.
