Dash of color aids Denny’s paint project

When Tom Ellis’ grandmother handed him his first bundle of crayons as a child, he knew he would grow up to be an artist. Today, at 68, he is still achieving his dream. 

On Thursday, Ellis had the opportunity to use his talent to help his hometown of Iola. He hoisted himself up into a cherry picker crane and painted the murals on the old windows on Denny’s Sports Center.

“There are a lot of people involved in this building, it’s not just me,” Ellis said. “And after I leave there will still be a lot to be done on this building and a lot of others.”
