Before. Hmm. Needs a lot of work.
Joe and Kyle pour the pedestal. Billy Curtis, a big-time concrete professional with the Baesler Corporation, arrives and says, "You guys need any help?" Thanks, Billy!
The concrete pour
This is Kentucky State Representative Richard Henderson. When he ran for office he said he would work for the people in his district. Turns out, he is true to his word and actually knows what the the word "work" really means. Richard also wrote House-Senate Resolution 84 that allowed the statue placement at this site. Thanks, Richard!
Richard and Billy finishing the sidewalk. Bill Centers doing the rockwork.
Stanton Mayor Dale Allen smoothing things out. Jeffersonville Mayor, Anthony Henderson, also put in a full day doing concrete work.
Here in the mountains, you do what you can, when you can.
Joe rallies the troops, "It's looking good, folks."
Delbert Brown and the crew from Rosa's went way beyond the call of duty-and what they originally pledged. Thank you, Rosa's Garden Center.
Debbie Barns, from Lexington, sent a large donation of landscaping plants. Thank you, Debbie.
Artist Raymond Graff arrives with statues. The second goes to Prestonsburg where you may see it at the courthouse. Well done, Raymond!
