ALBION – A 20-foot-long mural celebrating the immigrant quarry workers from more than a century ago is being installed this morning at Waterman Park in downtown Albion. (The photo only shows half of the mural.)

Artist Ninandré Bogue of Lyndonville created the mural, which was painted on two 10-foot-long panels. Bogue, left, is pictured with Jay Pahura from the Albion Department of Public Works.

The Albion Rotary Club took the lead on the project that includes funding from the local club, a matching grant from the Rotary District, and additional support from the Orleans County Tourism Department. The Albion DPW provided in-kind services by building the mount that will hold up the mural.

Orleans Hub will have more on the mural later today.
