Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

City residents learn the art of creating a mosaic mural. Veterans and area artists will create a mural that represents the population of the Badger community. People viewing the art will reminisce about the past, present, and future growth. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with project planners, notes related to personal observation, and audience numbers specifically veterans participation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

People are awed by the beauty and magnitude of the project. Residents volunteered and learned a new form of art in Mosaic stained glass application. Our Facebook page exceeded the 400 goal number of members to 800+. Fall Fest unveiling and fundraiser had over 800 people observing our progress. 32 individuals donated of their time to learn/assist the mosaic to completion. The talented and knowledgeable growth of the volunteers is astounding and very noticeable.
