I received this update from Todd today about Leslieville’s new Jeffrey Baldwin statue. We are proud to have contributed financially to this effort and can’t wait for it to be complete!
“It does not appear likely that September 27th will be the unveiling date of Jeffrey’s statue in Greenwood Park. The statue will be ready but there are a few logistical items that require some more time to address. October 3-4th is Yom Kippur, the following weekend is Thanksgiving so we are aiming for Saturday October 18th. I will be certain to update you as plans firm up.
I’ve included a recent picture of the bronze figure of Jeffrey being worked on by the Artcast foundry.
The bronze bench that Jeffrey will attached to is going to be amazing. Every square inch of every plank is inscribed with around 200 signatures and messages for Jeffrey from people who contributed to the project.”
