   DUVALL--Members of the Cedarcrest High School Art Club, fueled by numerous pizzas supplied by the Duvall Chamber of Commerce, painted a landscape mural on the concrete wall at the entrance to Duvall at the Woodinville-Duvall bridge earlier this summer.

   Art Club members included: Ginnie Cardin, Mikaela Cardin, Katie Byrne, Bryanne Siggstedt, Erin Beyerlein, Rosey Cortez, Dianna Salido, Rachel Lynch, Cintia Reyes, Tiffany Benson, Edgar Mendez, Kelly Resler, and Diane Ihlenfeldt. Advisors are Pam Johnson and Brad Skiff.

   The students chose a theme of sunflowers, a river, mountains, and forest. The mural is part of a town beautification effort sponsored by the Chamber and city. The artwork on the fence in front of Duvall Towing was painted by artist Eric Heston.

   According to Chamber boardmember Arline Wallace, the organization was successful this year at getting people to adopt the flower barrels and some of the trees in town.

   "The city is watering the barrels this year," she said. "And this fall, we will be planting them with kale and bulbs."

   The Chamber is also attempting to create an information center in town with public restrooms, she said.

   "Our next event will be Woodstack, on September 8," she said. "We will also be having our 2nd annual all-city garage sale and swap meet."
