Chalk artists gather

Chalk artists gather at Galt Community Park Monday, June 15 to express positive messages about being kind and respectful of each other, especially those of other races and cultures. Organized by Galt resident Reilly Butler, the latest event by the Wake Up Galt Facebook group saw many colorful encouraging messages, including, ‘It may take a generation to end, but let that generation be ours’, ‘Be teachable, be correctable, be patient, be consistent, be kind’, ‘A city divided can never be united’ and ‘Equal rights for others doesn’t mean less rights for you’.  Wake Up Galt was started by a local couple wanting to bring racial awareness to those living in Galt.
