Keene Rec Center Mural Project

The mural project at the Keene Recreation Center is moving forward with many volunteers collaborating to create a large indoor mural to celebrate our community, history and spirit. The mural is coming alive with a vivid portrayal of who we are as a community and what we are proud of.  
There are still opportunities for the public to participate in the creation of the mural. This process will be inspiring and fun. Please join us at the Recreation Center in Room 24 (upstairs) and contact the muralist, Jeanne Marie Eayrs at 267-221-3042 for scheduled times during the month of May. We look forward to your participation.

Spirit of Place Logo

Building a Spirit of Place is a Keene community development and beautification project supported by the community, businesses and civic organizations.  We seek to enhance the appearance of Keene while building a sense of pride and community spirit, thereby improving the environmental, economic, and social well-being of our city and its neighborhoods for today and tomorrow. We embrace the proposition that citizens can create and shape the communities in which they live. We challenge organizations and individuals to enhance the appearance of their community, while building a sense of involvement and pride.

We envision a strong, vibrant place where the health and well-being of Keene and the people who live, play, study and work here are nourished and supported. We visualize a community where our residents work together and participate in a meaningful communal life. Building a Spirit of Place seeks to foster pride and awareness working together for our city and the quality of life for those who call Keene home.

We challenge you to help us deepen the value and appeal of Keene, while awakening community pride. Volunteer, donate, spread the word – get involved!
