ALBION – Albion Middle School art teacher Kamie Feder added “Welcome to Albion” above the canal mural on the Albion Fire Hall this weekend.

Middle school students this week will work on freshening up the 25-year-old mural of a canal boat pulled by mules.

The artwork originally was the Girl Scout Gold Award project for Corinne Toenniessen, who received some help in the design from Terri Wood.

Feder, the art teacher, used a lift to get above the mural to add the welcome message. Students won’t have to get so high up to work on the mural this week.
