The Crete Area Chamber of Commerce has taken over the Crete Mural Committee completely. This committee will visually present the rich history of Crete in a series of tastefully done, colorful Murals. Placed in significant locations and on appropriate buildings, the Murals will enhance the streets and avenues of beautiful, quaint Crete.
The first in the series, "Reflections of Crete", will be displayed at a prominent Dixie Highway/Main Street site. Successive Murals will depict the history and growth of Crete and its development in the areas of commerce...industry...recreation...and Crete's continuing commitment to family values.
We need YOUR help to make Crete's Historical Mural Program a success. We are seeking financial support through its fundraising campaign, businesses, site owners, and individual contributors.
