Mystery Mural

One additional “mystery mural” has been added to the list of murals to be completed during Chief City Runs With the Dogs.  The mural subject and location are a mystery until the meet begins, however clever observers in the Pontiac area may be able to find the wall due to the prep work being done to it.
