Get ready to show your pink.In an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer and the screening options that are recommended, organizers are holding a Paint Warren County Pink Weekend that begins this Thursday.Tyra Green at Boyd & Boyd Nursery on Smithville Highway has already gotten into the act. She painted the one-ton, concrete gorilla in front of the nursery pink in late September in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.“We’ve done a lot of different things with him over the years, but I think this is the best one,” said Green, who received help from co-workers Lindsay Barnes and Katherine Green. “A customer called and requested that we do this and I’ve always wanted the chance to put him in a tutu so he’s wearing a tutu and a giant bra.”Green is encouraging cancer survivors to stop and sign the gorilla through October.
