Ketchikan, Alaska - "Marine Life" was Project Ketchikan's first theme as their effort to beautify Ketchikan kicked off Sunday. The group held its first building art painting activity downtown on Front and Mill from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm.

The Ketchikan Indian Community (KIC) and Northern Sales Corporation supplied the food and refreshments for Project Ketchikan's cookout and Roberta McCreary of the Ketchikan Arts Council and LaToya Gates of Big Brothers Big Sisters promoted the event according to Gretchen Klein.

Klein said, "There are countless others we can not thank enough for their dedication to this project."

Project Ketchikan is sponsored by Historic Ketchikan and the Ketchikan Area Arts and Humanities Council.
