A group of Calhoun County SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) members had a colorful spring break. They took some time out of their vacation to paint this mural along the Blountstown Greenway behind the M & B Train Depot Museum.
The Calhoun County Board of Commissioners recently signed a proclamation designating Mar. 28-Apr. 2 as Tobacco Free Florida Week for Calhoun County. The mural, sponsored by the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office and funded with a Calhoun County Tobacco Prevention Coalition grant, was a way to celebrate the special week. Artists Jeff Vickery and Jonathon Alford were brought on board and the project took off. Featuring an anti-tobacco message, the mural will tie-in with the Blountstown Middle School art show at the depot in April.
