Aug 13

Bergen Rocks...Aug 13

A welcoming reception was held at the Didsbury Museum tonight. It was a very nice event, wine and cheese and the whole nine yards. The posters behind the artists list the sponsors of the welcoming reception and gifts that were presented tonight. There is still a lot of work to do but it is nice to take a break once in a while.

Presentations were made on behalf of Prairies 2 Peaks, Alberta Tourism and Olds/Didsbury MLA Gary Mar. Municipalities from the surrounding area contributed gift packs, many local officials attended. I'd like to thank those that took the time to recognize these fellas and thank them for thier work and the legacy that they will leave here. The sculptures should have a life span of at least 1000 years, they will add to our culture for centuries.

FINALLY! The faces of the sculptors! It is a refreshing view, rather than seeing them all hunched over their work. Very nice! Thank you!!!!!!!
