The MCAF apprentices had a chance to showcase some of their masonry skills. Thank you to everyone who took the time on a Saturday to come out and support Florida's future generation of masons. Your continued support of this program is the cornerstone of our success. Immediately following the masonry expo, the MCAF gave a salute to their graduating apprentices along with a luncheon catered by Mission B-B-Q.

Longtime building industry leader works to attract workers
Members of the Painter family have been masons since the early 20th Century, and Painter Masonry has operated for 50 years.
The company, which laid bricks and cement blocks for many of the buildings at the University of Florida and other parts of Greater Gainesville, won’t continue for another generation. No family member is ready to continue Painter Masonry’s legacy, and none of the workers have stepped up to take over.
What’s more, it’s harder and harder to find workers who are willing to take on the arduous work of building the future – one brick at a time – in the Florida sun.
