Community Involvement

In January of 2014, Instead of throwing an anniversary party, Hester Painting & Decorating took on a charity project for their 45th anniversary with the 100 year old Wilmette Theatre. Hester wanted to reach out to the community by giving one of the town’s oldest attractions a free make over. This project won Hester a PIPP Award for Community Improvement Award.
