Snowshoe statuette on tap at arts faire

Staff reports

One of the booths at the Candy Dance will show off a table-top size bronze statute of Snowshoe Thompson, sponsored by the Greater Genoa Business Association.

The statue is a model of the larger sculpture that the group hopes to install in Genoa. The Snowshoe Thompson committee of the GGBA has raised over $25,000 in donations, and a contract has been signed with sculptor Don Budy.

The group is raising funds through the sale of bricks and raffle drawings. Raffle tickets will be available and donations for personalized, engraved bricks will be taken at the GGBA booth and also at the Wild Rose Inn and Genoa Gallery on Main Street during the two-day celebration.
