The "Late for the Interurban" statue in Fremont is an amazing tribute to our heroes by sculptor Kevin Pettelle. More than just bronze, the statue features painted details that really bring the statue to life! Unfortunately, weather, time and, occasionally, graffiti, take their toll on these details requiring regular maintenance and occasional repainting. The smaller, annual maintenance (cleaning, waxing and polishing) can be completed by volunteers, but the larger restoration (stripping old paint, prepping, and painting) requires hiring Mr. Pettelle for this more involved project.
A portion of the proceeds from the Patches Patio Pavers is set aside for statue maintenance as well as for donations to Seattle Children's, however, paver reservations have been down the last few years. Additionally, we had to remove the donation box at the statue because it was repeatedly being broken into. So, that leaves us in the unfortunate position to have to ask for help cover the costs of the necessary restoration.
Kevin has already completed the first phase by stripping away the old, damaged paint and giving a fresh coat on the faces. The next phases, which involve cleaning the rest of the statue, re-patina certain details and cleaning up the ICU2-TV, require warmer temperatures and will be completed next spring.
NOTE: To donate amounts other than what is listed above, simply add additional quantities to total the amount that you wish to give.
