BREWER - The Brewer Housing Authority has enlisted local children to help construct a mural in the city's new 2.4 million dollar education and job training facility.
Students from the Brewer Community School are leaving their mark on a room intended for use as a child day care.
Officials say the mural represents the twin city as a "community of caring," and includes elements from across the state.
The kids' hardwork will be on full display on December 16 when they hope to open the daycare.
