The Garrett Schools Alumni Association will be making a contribution to support the Garrett Mural Fest.
We are asking you, as a Garrett Schools Alumni, to join us in supporting the City of Garrett.
If you haven’t been following along with this amazing project, these are just a few pictures of the breathtaking mural on the side of Garrett City Hall.
Following is a letter from the mayor of Garrett. You find a link in his letter to make a donation. The Garrett Alumni Association thanks you for your consideration.
To All Railroaders and Garrett Supporters
We have been humbled and inspired by the process of getting out first mural on the side of Garrett City Hall for the Northeast Indiana Partnership and NEI Mural Fest! We have seen in such a short time how much positivity and pride this has poured into our community.
Let’s do this again!! Phase II will help us raise funds for another mural to possibly go on the side of Shorty’s Steakhouse or continue on with the one on City Hall. Patronicity is a statewide matching grant fund program, so if we raise $10,000.00, the state (Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority) will match it and Garrett will have a total of $20,000.00. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00!
Whether you can give $2, $10 or $200 we will be forever grateful in the artist growth and community pride you have helped support! The deadline for donations will be October 30, 2020. [update: the deadline has been extended to November 15, 2020.]

Thank you very much!
