Settlers’ Watch Carvings Update -May
As regular readers are aware, the volunteers of Charleston Village, with the help of the City of Lorain have started to take down the carvings off the tree lawn at Settlers’ Watch.
These carvings have to be refurbished and refinished before they can be replaced in and around Settlers’ Watch and Eric Barnes Heroes Walk.
The first carving- The Anchor- was taken down on a very cold day in February-
taken to a warehouse
and we waited for spring and enough warmth to use the chemicals needed and also for the volunteers ( spearheaded by Frank Sipkovsky) to be able to work.
There is more to this than one might think, stabilizing rods, filler and sanding galore needs to be done.
If anyone would like to donate some time and talent helping to get these 4 carvings refurbished and finished- we could use the help. email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help or call 440-246-6046
We have to move The Heron – donated by Oster Homes, The Portside Lorain sign ( grant)- The Anchor in progress ( also a grant) and the Lorain Lighthouse – donated by Port of Lorain Foundation- Lakeland Healthcare Corp.
