The GFWC Temple Terrace Woman’s Club and Junior Woman’s Club continue to preserve the city’s history one step at a time.
The next place you can expect to see their colorful mosaic stepping stones is Woodmont Park. Representatives from the clubs presented some of the stones to Al Latina, a member of the Woodmont Clubhouse Association.
This is the third location where the stones will be placed. The clubs have also donated stones to the Temple Terrace Family Recreation Complex and the Temple Terrace Community Garden. They gave one to former Temple Terrace Police Officer Tracy Mishler, who retired earlier this year.
Each stone is made from colorful pieces of tile from the old Publix mural in the downtown redevelopment area. The mural and other old storefronts were demolished in February. The day before the mural was knocked down, Woman’s Clubs members and David Long, husband of member Anita Long, chipped off some of the tile pieces.
In August, members began using the pieces to create mosaic stepping stones. They’ve been donating the stones to community groups ever since.
