A downtown Vegreville mural may be completed sooner than anticipated ...

Artist Brie Adkins started the "Learning to Share" mural, located on the east side of 4910 50th Avenue, in 2019 and now, there are plans to make it a full-wall picture.

The Vegreville Tourism Advisory Board had originally drafted as a sponsorship concept to fund its completion but has since asked the Town of Vegreville to move forward with the project by funding all  related  costs  out  of  the  existing  2020  tourism  budget.

Mayor Tim MacPhee says that gives the tourism board up to $10-thousand to finish the project.

MacPhee says the money will come from what was already budgeted this year for the advisory board

According to the Town, the Tourism Advisory Board hopes to have the mural completed sometime this summer.
