Our Award Winning Fresh Paint Days Project - Rafters Antiques

(Oklahoma City, August 11, 2017) – 66 community structures across Oklahoma have been chosen as projects for Fresh Paint Days. This Keep Oklahoma Beautiful (KOB) program is designed to encourage volunteers to seek out structures and renovate them with the creative use of resources. This year, Collinsville Downtown, Inc. was chosen as one of the 47 participating groups.

Fresh Paint Days is a program founded on the collaboration between H-I-S Paint and Keep Oklahoma Beautiful. KOB, with the help of sponsors, provides the paint and a stipend for supplies; selected communities supply the volunteers. This program has helped to revitalize communities across Oklahoma with a fresh coat of paint.


Thank you to everyone who voted for our project, which is what got us to the top three finalists.    And thank you to H.I.S. Paint in OKC, for seeing the difference and impact, that the work we did made, and awarding us with first place.
