As residents, staff, Board members, Auxiliary Board members and other supporters gathered outside St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children this afternoon, a vehicle appeared in the distance.
Ron Herrick and Tom Dvorak from St. Mary’s maintenance department carefully removed the precious cargo from the trailer, then helped artist Georgia Mason unwrap her creation: a mermaid for the children and young adults of SMHDC.
The mermaid was unveiled Saturday at St. Mary’s donor reception off site. Mason then delivered her to St. Mary’s today. The mermaid statue will be permanently installed just outside the front entrance of the building, for residents and visitors to enjoy.
