Restore Historical Wall Murals Painted By My Dad

I am raising money to restore wall murals that were painted at one time by my father, Marcel Faille.  He was a sign painter, Marcel Faille Signs, in the city of Sanford, FL for over 40 years.  He was a very talented man.  His work could be seen all over town.   He painted the Stokes Fish sign many years ago,  actual date is unknown by me.  There is a mural on each side of the building.  The building is now in the Sanford Historical District and is part of the Wop's Hops Brewery .  The owners of Wop's Hops have no intention of painting over the murals.  The artist cost to restore the murals is $5500, and we have raised $2525 so far.  This building and murals are part of old, historical Sanford, and it would be ashamed to see these deteriorate to the point they are unrestorable.  I want to preserve these beautiful murals in memory of my father and his talented work, for all the citizens of Sanford, and all who see them.  The Sanford Historic Trust is also working with me to help raise money.  They have launched a pre-sale t-shirt fundraiser.  The signs will be highlighted on the front of the shirts.   You can go to www.sanfordhistorictrust.wildapricot.org for more information on how to order.  I would be so grateful  to anyone who contributes to this worthy cause.  Thank you.
