Mural dedicated at Covered Bridge Park

South Whitehall Township officials recently dedicated a mural created by Carrie Kingsbury of Birdsboro at the Covered Bridge Park pedestrian bridge in South Whitehall.

The mural, for which graffiti resistant, paint was used, depicts wildlife found throughout the township and various events held at the park.

The portion of the mural facing west that depicts children was painted on parachute cloth in the artist’s studio then applied to the wall.

On hand for the dedication were South Whitehall Township Manager Renee Bickel, Director of Operations Randy Cope, Board of Commissioners President Tori Morgan, Parks and Recreation Manager Mike Kukitz, Lehigh County Executive Phillips Armstrong, State Reps. Ryan Mackenzie, R-134th, and Mike Schlossberg, D-132nd, and Ellen Millard-Kern, chief of staff for State Sen. Pat Browne, R-16th

Lehigh County and the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce Foundation both donated funds to help defer the cost of the pedestrian bridge mural.

Lehigh County donated $2,500 and the Chamber donated $1,000.
