Paint-A-Thon to host barbecue for volunteers

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Paint-A-Thon in Morrison County. This annual event, coordinated by Oasis Central Minnesota, brings together nearly 200 volunteers the first Saturday of August to paint the exteriors of homes owned by low-income residents of Morrison County.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary, Oasis Central Minnesota will sponsor a barbecue Thursday, July 25, at 6 p.m. at Lions Park, on Fourth Street Southeast, behind St. Otto’s Care Center, Little Falls.

All paint team volunteers, past and present, as well as anyone who has had their house painted through the Paint-A-Thon are invited to attend. Food, games and beverages will be provided. This celebration barbecue will take the place of the usual paint day breakfast.
