This year, the Live Gilmer Board of Directors decided to donated a new mural to the Gilmer downtown area, by comissioning artist Odessa Helm to paint the exterior wall of the Gilmer Mirror building facing Hwy 271. To raise funds for the total cost of the mural, which included equipment rentals, supplies, design planning and graphics, the board hosted a golf tournament at the Gilmer Country Club. Sponsors for the tournament included many local businesses like Stanley Ford Gilmer, Derek Moore CPA, Glaze and Garrett Law, Stewart Realty, Scout 5 Construction, US Defenders (local), Cozy Coffee Station, CUTX, ETEX, Legacy Ag Credit, Cal-Main Foods, Gary Vestal’s Edward Jones, Wicked Pines Outfitters, Croley Funeral Home, Pulse Direct Care, Riley Henson Builders, and Wilburn Insurance. These are the businesses that support our town! The tournament had 17 teams play, and raised a total of $5,000 toward the total $9,000 cost of the mural. Live Gilmer funds provided the rest!
