Thank you to the New Melle VFW for supporting the New Melle Plein Air Painting event each year. Members of the VFW Auxiliary have, for years, placed flags on poles in New Melle for that day as a way to greet and welcome the artists and add to the beauty of the town.
The VFW also loans flags to the New Melle Chamber of Commerce which are used to mark roads and driveways to properties where the artists have been invited to paint. We appreciate the help and support!
Note: The New Melle Paint Out is one of over 19 special events that are part of the annual 10-day Augusta Missouri Plein Air Art Festival.
