VINCENNES, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Friday was “Graffiti Day” at the YMCA Bettye J. McCormick Senior Center in Vincennes.

The special day was an effort put on through grant funding from the city. Special Needs clients of the facility were able to have some fun and make community connections by taking part.

Food trucks, local music performances, and visual artists joined in the event.

Joe Yuris, the owner of Black Rose Tattoos, is a local artist who worked on a 100-foot mural for the event. He said it’s important to give back.

“Just to give something back to our community. You know we wouldn’t be able to do what we do every day if it wasn’t for everybody else, so to come out here and give something back, it’s just a real enjoyment,” said Yuris.

Nola Davis the director of the Senior Center says she is thankful for the community partners and for everyday YMCA clients who participated in the event.
