New murals unveiled at Bristol Rec Park
BRISTOL — The Bristol Recreation Club unveiled new murals in the rec park on Saturday Sept. 10. The murals were commissioned in celebration of the Rec Club’s 100th Anniversary. Vermont artist Jess Graham designed the murals and painted them this summer with help from local residents, including dozens of children participating in summer camps at the Rec Park.
Saturday’s event included yard games and a cookout for Rec Club members as well as expressions of gratitude to the artist and to the donors who supported the mural work and celebration (Vermont Community Foundation, Neat Repeats, and National Bank of Middlebury).

Its mission is to maintain outdoor recreation space for the amusement, enjoyment, and recreation of the residents of Bristol, Vt.
