Patrick Farrow was an imagineer; who through creativety, ingenuity and an artists vision provided this community with a unique treasure. So many times I've seen children playing at or on the sculpture and adults standing with their cameras, perhaps envisioning that invisible leash that forever bound the two ends of the statuary together (or at least so we thought). Whimsical to say the least, but memorable for it's value to arouse our spirits. The damage to the artwork may ultimately be repaired. We owe that much to the master craftsman who provided us with it. Patrick Farrow's contribution was one for people of all ages; which perhaps was his vision of what the future of this community should be. A community for those of all ages, filled with art, culture, educational opportunity, economic growth and yes a little "imaginative whimsey".
