The National Sculpture Society is having their celebration weekend in Loveland Colorado May 17.
Sculptors from around the world will visit Loveland to tour studios, foundries, and businesses. Our District 5440 project “Every Day a Hero” fire fighter bronze will be featured at Sculpture Depot in Loveland over the weekend.
The sculpture continues to travel and represent Rotary throughout many communities:
- The sculpture will be at Syntax Vodka Distillery, 625 3rd Street, Greeley for First Friday, an evening of the arts, May 4, 4-11 PM. Live music, art and fabulous vodka.
- There will be a Mayoral proclamation given by Scott Moser, Mayor of Eaton, at 1:30 PM May 4 to proclaiming a City Fire fighter Day to be held May 12 on Main Street with a fire fighter pancake supper from 2-8 PM.
- Sunday, May 20 the sculpture will be at First Congregational Church, Greeley, for a final blessing and rides in the 1955 fire truck for a ticket price of a jar of peanut butter for the food bank.
The final unveiling will be at Williston Park, NY Memorial Day May 28. After being transported by Ian Leavy of Fort Collins Foothills Rotary and owner of Exodus Trucking, the sculpture will have a new home as a visual reminder that we remember and care. After travelling over 3600 miles being an ambassador for Rotary, he will enjoy his new resting place. Gary and Colette Pitcher, the makers of the sculpture, invite you to visit www.RotaryMemorial .com to see details. Well wishes and appreciation have been high, but funding has been low. Your donations and purchases of merchandise would be helpful. The maquette sales to fund the project have been reduced to $600 for a 12” bronze table top sculpture on a wood base engraved with the Rotary wheel. Limited edition caps are still available at $20. You may still purchase both at the Rotary District Conference June 5-8 in Estes.
