The Edmonds Mural Society has selected more murals to be painted by artists through the downtown core this summer.

To help buy the paint and pay the muralists, the society is going to hold a Cash Mob for Murals. Cash mobs are inspired by the concept of flash mobs popularized by Facebook where groups of people show up at a site and perform.

With cash mobs, the mural society is hoping people show up in groups with cash to help contribute to the murals that help beautify downtown Edmonds.

“I’m so excited by the idea of a cash mob,” Edmonds Mural Society member Steve Quinn said. “I just love this year’s murals, and what a great way to pay for them.”

Any amount of cash will be accepted; a $20 bill gets you a society membership. The cash mob is set for 3 p.m. Sunday at Manya Vee Selects gallery, 409 Main St., Edmonds.

Cupcakes and games: The Mukilteo Library is offering a special end-of-school event at 1 p.m. Thursday.

The library will provide cupcakes, frosting and candy; kids provide the decorating creativity.

For more information, call 425-493-8202. The library is at 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd., Mukilteo.
