Town of Paradise Weekly Update 8-30-2023

The Town and the Paradise Art Center were both happy to provide a fun family-friendly opportunity for residents. “It was a great opportunity for the community to come together and participate in such a fun, light-hearted event,” said DerryBerry. Participants took their painted rocks home to decorate houses and yards, and leftover rocks were placed around town or at the Paradise Pet Memorial at Bille Park.
