The sun shone with a fervor and resilience that a pair of sunglasses couldn’t dim. But along the wooded trail which heads the Lamoille River Walk, off Checkerberry Square, all was quiet and cool.

Muralist Jon Young led the charge, painting the outlines of seven murals on the park’s dugouts and labeling them in a paint-by-number fashion.
