Paint for a cause will take place at the SEMO District Fair, September 9 - 16. The cause for this painting is the residents of the Missouri Veterans Home in Cape Girardeau. All visitors to the fair are invited to stop by the booth and leave their brush strokes and donation. A journal will be kept with the name and hometown of each participant and will be put on permanent display with the painting in the Veteran’s home lobby. Paint for a cause is a way of saying “thank you” to our military veterans. Local artists Aaron Horrell and Barb Bailey will add the finishing touches to the painting that they are hoping will set a Cape Girardeau record for the most people to paint a painting. The painting will be at the SEMO District Fair September 9 - 16.
