Veterans raising funds for honorary sculpted art tiles

2016-veterans-day-ceremony-20With the sixth panel of the Colusa County Veterans Memorial wall near completion, organizers are seeking the opportunity to continue its dedication in honoring past and present service members who follow the call to serve our country.

“We hope to add a custom sculpture panel to the back of each wall that represents each major war or conflict,” said Dennis Sanders, one of the leading individuals behind the construction of the wall.

Sanders added that the panels would represent a scene from World War I, World War II, the Korean conflict, and the Vietnam War, as well as the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. The panels are to be crafted by area sculptor, Peter Adams.

“The panels will be about three feet tall and three feet wide,” said Sanders.

Adams currently teaches ceramics classes with the Colusa County Arts Council, and recently crafted a monument for Colusa High School. He has also been commissioned by several local individuals for custom sculptures and pieces of art.

Sanders commented that the group is seeking donations to complete the project.

“We are hoping to raise enough to complete this special addition to the wall,” said Sanders. “This project has taken on a life of its own, its wonderful.”

Sanders added that the memorial wall has been a rewarding community project.

“When we started this project the community helped graciously,” said Sanders. “We couldn’t have done it without their support.”

He added that donations can be sent to Veteran Tribute Wall, P0 Box 294, Colusa, CA 95932.

For information about this project, or to obtain a memorial brick, contact Dennis Sanders at (530) 913-5017, or Chaz Franklin at (530) 635-0746.
