Volunteer Artists Cheer on Purdue University Veterinary Hospital Heroes
People entering or leaving Lynn Hall last Friday afternoon, July 24, were greeted with encouraging splashes of color and text on the sidewalks adjacent to the Small and Large Animal Hospital entrances. The artwork was the work of the family of Alan Schrope, Purdue University Veterinary Hospital administrator. As part of a church service project for Calvary Baptist Church in West Lafayette, Alan’s wife, Lisa, and their son and daughter, Kaden and Sophia, demonstrated their creative flair by using colored chalk to draw pictures and write out encouraging messages on the sidewalks – messages like “You’re Amazing,” “Heroes Work Here,” and “Our Pets Love You.”
The beautiful artwork lasted until recent rains washed much of it away. But not all was lost, as the family also created bright and thoughtful yard signs that are placed along the sidewalks. A big thank you to Lisa, Kaden, and Sophia for their enthusiastic effort to honor the heroes at work in the Veterinary Hospital!
