Dr Association conference in Cleveland,
ii- Ohio, last year. Bob Dascola, an Ann
he Arbor native and University alum, tells
"I of the project's origin: "We brought this
an project down from Cleveland. They had
is- professional paint (work) there.
it "We discussed it over three hours on the
ge way back and had all the details worked
out by the tine ct&ot to Ann Arbor."
tic Dascola has worked on campus for 35
of years as a barber and is now a member of
ar- the State Street Area Association.
"It's important to put back into the com-
re munity ... so that's what I'm doing, I'm
z- giving back," he saidbout his position as
ni- co-chair of the hydrant painting project.
ea "It goes well with the town and gown,"
cy Dascola said of the project's impact on
rg Ann Arbor. "Different neighborhood asso-
rd ciations have called the city about getting
permission to do this - it's turned into a
il- whole community project."
of Even the University athletic department
u- painted four fire hydrants around Michi-
gan Stadium. "The athletic department
M stole our idea - it's kind of cute, I'm glad
Ve they did," Bob added.
