To Honor Those That Serve

A MURAL PAINTED BY A LOCAL ARTIST on the Harrisonville Fire House was dedicated on Nov. 12. This mural acted to honor the brave men and women who keep our community safe, as well as the founding fathers of the Harrisonville Fire Department. It features an antique firetruck that was used in previous years, combined with imagery capturing the local farming community. Creator Myrissa McAndrews is a Visual Artist, Live Painting Performer, and Woolwich native. She spent much of her childhood in Harrisonville and considers it her second home. Not only was this Myrissa’s largest project to date, but also her first mural. This ceremony was closed with the painting of the artist’s signature.

“It was an honor to be chosen to bring this piece to life and give back to the community in the best way I know how, through color,” said McAndrews. The mural has been a work in progress over the past three months.
