Algoma coloring sidewalks with uplifting messages

The Algoma Youth Club is keeping young, and the young-at-heart engaged in activities even though the community center facility is not open to the public at this time.  City of Algoma Parks Director Sara Robertson says a family chalk art contest is currently underway and is offering a fun diversion for students that are outside the classroom.  She explains the details behind the promotion.


The sidewalk chalk art contest began last week with this Thursday being the deadline.  Voting will take place until Easter Sunday.  Robertson says even if you don’t have chalk, you can mix equal parts of cornstarch and water with food coloring.  You can paintbrush your colorful message of the artwork.
