Downtown Licking gets a new look

The remainder of the VFW Post #6337 murals, made by the SCCC Restorative Justice Program, were hung on Thursday. Intercounty Electric Cooperative Association employees Josh Hood and Eryc Koch placed the murals from the bucket while a crew assisted with details from the ground. Brandon Johnson began applying the silicone around the edges from another bucket (and graciously took a bird’s eye view photo).

The murals are coated with a polyurethane coating that, with the silicone edging, protects the murals from weathering. “We appreciate Intercounty getting the murals placed today,” said Harry Brevoort, VFW Post #6337 Quartermaster. “The COVID pandemic had halted progress on the completion of the mural project.” With the completion of the murals, the VFW hall is a landmark that represents our U.S. military services, the local VFW membership and our town in a most becoming way.

    We are new to the area (moved here almost 2 years ago) and love how Licking is such a clean and well taken care of small town. We are proud to be from Licking…!!!

    I’ll always remember this building as the Western Auto Store and where I use to jump my bike off the sidewalk. This is great what they have done with the Murals and Armed Forces Emblems. It makes me homesick. Proud to be from Licking, Missouri.
