Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: Columbia City works

The Wikli thinks you'll agree: Columbia Citizens work hard to make this place work so well. Toward the end of summer, it feels good to take some time, reflect on a job well done, and look forward to the road ahead. This one's a bi-Wikli — let's pull the next one together after Labor Day weekend.


Live locally.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Make your mark on Columbia City

Have you noticed the brilliant shade of green on the chain-link fence outside the Columbia School building? Artist Tonia Arehart and her team of helpers have done a remarkable job improving the appearance of this once rusting, unsightly fence. The beautification is almost complete, but before it's done, she'll need your help. The last step will be adding decorative marks to the metal poles in the fence. Please see Tonia's note below.
