Fenelon's First Heritage Mural

The first Heritage Mural for the village of Fenelon Falls was recently unveiled at the Fenelon Falls Curling Club.

The mural was first available for a sneak peek at this year’s Kawartha Lakes Country Living Show, where artist Donna Bisschop was available to chat with people about the mural and her artistic process to creatively capture the history of the sport.

Last week, Donna shared more about how she managed to create such a large piece of artwork, put together in large wooden panels and protected against the weather.

Darlene Young of the Curling Club shares, “The mural shows curling through the ages in Fenelon Falls. The mural was made possible by the generous donation of the Fenelon Falls Curling Club Europe trip.”

Mayor Andy Letham, Councillor Doug Elmslie, Chamber of Commerce President Tim Wisener, and the artist Donna Bisschop were all on hand for the unveiling, along with Curling Club Executives Gail Allman, and Brent Simpson. A small reception followed.

Be sure to check out the mural at the Curling Club. Who knows what our next community Heritage Mural could be?
