Chewstick Postpones Community Mural Painting

April 28, 2015

With the weather forecast promising precipitation and windy conditions, the Chewstick Foundation has postponed the painting of a mural that will celebrate the 68th anniversary of the Bermuda Industrial Union [BIU].

The new date is May 3 at 8.00pm.

A spokesperson previously said, “The Bermuda Industrial Union and the Chewstick Foundation invite the community to participate in the second phase of murals in celebration of the incredible history and leadership of the BIU.

“To commemorate this occasion, there will be two murals painted to honour Dr. Barbara Ball and Mr. Ottiwell Simmons as iconic leaders in the history of the Bermuda Industrial Union.”

Of the partnership, BIU President Chris Furbert said, “The BIU is happy to partner with the Chewstick Foundation on this project.

“Our members and others in the community positively comment daily on the Dr. Gordon mural, so I am looking forward to seeing Dr. Ball and Brother Ottie immortalized on the walls of the Bermuda Industrial Union.”
