Kudos to S.W. Gillen Painting for La Jolla spruce up

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to spruce up a worn and weathered surface. That’s why we say “kudos” and “thank you” to the S.W. Gillen Painting company for painting the stair handrails at the end of Westbourne Street, at no cost, as a gift to the Friends of WindanSea. Their next planned paint job is on the handrails and benches by the staircase at the end of Nautilus Street, and should be completed soon.
