The mural was unveiled on September 1, 2018. It was a very special day! Cristy Dunn and I unveiled the mural as we have the first four. Mike, my husband was there to cheer me on as well as my son and his family and friends. Stephen Long did a great job leading the events of the day. Authors of "The Lopsided 3" and "The Ramblers" were there. Evelyn Cook spoke, Danny Meadows played bagpipes and the JAM kids played as well as our own Long Journey Home group of Stephen, Lois Dunn, Jerry Moses, Kyman Matherly and Kenny Price and friends.
Our theme song of "Cloudy in the West and it looks like rain" was very fitting for the day but Andrew Matherly was there to help me unveil my side of the mural and he knew all along that the rain was going around us...and it did. My granddaughter was also standing there with me to pull the cord and let the cover fall to unveil the Lopsided 3. It was a day I will never forget.
The mural is an honor to our musical heritage and all the history of trains in Johnson County and nearby. I hope you will enjoy it! I loved painting it!
