“The 100th Anniversary Committee was created to build some momentum starting with our 95th Anniversary Celebration this year and then plan annual events leading up to our Platinum Anniversary in 2021,” said Mayor Ron Gunter, chair of the 100th Anniversary Committee. “One of the projects that our group will kick off this year will be a series of murals depicting various eras of Westmont history!”

“The concept is to do a total of five murals, with a new mural being debuted each year for the next five years,” stated Trustee Bruce Barker, who is coordinating the mural project. “The first mural will be unveiled this year on Nov. 10 to celebrate our 95th anniversary.”

At this time, the committee is asking for local artists interested in participating on the project to sign up. The online sign-up form asks for contact info, artistic background, and samples of work. For more information, contact the 100th Anniversary Committee at or 630-417-0280.
