COMMUNITY LOSES LOCAL ARTIST

Mural in entry to libraryNationally renowned local artist Johnnie Nell McRae Liliedahl passed away this last week. We are very fortunate to have a beautiful example of her work in the entry to the library. The wall mural entitled "The Shell Seekers" is the first sight which greets our customers as they enter the library. It is a lovely tribute to La Porte's life by the bay.

Mrs. Liliedahl and her talent will be missed.
