Our downtown dinosaurs are able to get a face lift or a paint job all thanks to a donation.
"We had Mike Todor, who is a member of Dino Arts, took over organizing Boogie in the Badlands this year. He graciously donated $600 to the Dino Arts for us to put towards some projects this summer," stated chair member of Dino Arts, Courtney Bell.
"$600 is great for Dino Arts, especially since we have a relationship with the Chamber; they match any donation that we get. In theory we're going to get $1,200 for Dino Arts and it goes far with our organization."
So, what are some of those new summer projects?
"We are hoping to unveil a new dinosaur outside the Napier (Theatre). I know some people have noticed the big white Triceratops has been there for a while, he will be getting moved and we will have someone coming in to take his spot," explained Bell.
Bell expressed how much appreciation she has for all the volunteers that have been working hard to get the dinosaurs ready for the busy tourist season.
"They've done an excellent job and I think we have some really neat additions to the community this year."
