Mills Lawn students graffiti for peace
- Published: June 16, 2014
If you spot a couple of rainbow-laden vehicles around the village this year, you’ve got Mills Lawn fifth graders and villagers Joe Ayres and Karla Horvath to thank. In May, older students at Mills Lawn gathered to paint colorful pictures and messages of peace on Horvath’s van and Ayres’ station wagon as part of the school’s Project Peace campaign. Mills Lawn students have been in the habit of adding youthful graffiti to the station wagon for the last decade; it was previously owned by former Mills Lawn parent Laura Ellison, who first donated the car’s body as a canvas. When Joe Ayres acquired the car a few years ago, he continued the tradition. Check out the students at work in the gallery of photos, taken and submitted by Ayres, below.
