Summer Campers Create Mural in Honor of Sept. 11, 2001

The painting made by Camp Pequossette students will be unveiled during the 9/11 ceremony at Victory Field.

 

The white stars shine brightly and the red and white stripes wave before fading out into a picture of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The image is part of a mural honoring Sept. 11, 2001 being created by students at Camp Pequossette. 

When completed, the mural will be displayed at the 9/11 remembrance ceremony on Sept. 9 at Victory Field, the same day as the official re-dedicaiton of the field.

Watertown Veterans Agent Gina Rada contacted the camp, held at , to see if they were interested in creating a mural.

"With September 11th coming up, I wanted to see if we could get the community involved," Rada said.

She was able to get to donate the paint and brushes, and gave them the wood board on which the mural has been painted.

"Look how nice it looks," Rada said when she visted the campers Wednesday.

Kim Foley, the Camp Pequossette art director, said 20 to 25 campers have helped work on the mural.

"It will end up having a soldier, a firefighter and a police officer, and say 'Remember September 11th,'" Foley said.

Rada is looking for a permanent location for the mural.
