10:15 AM -- Enos Mills fundraising

Senator Bacon reported that the donors of the Enos Mills sculpture have not followed through with getting the funds to pay for the sculpture and place it. He explained that initial efforts for fundraising were unsuccessful and that a letter to the artist has been drafted indicating that the committee cannot go forward with placing the sculpture without the needed funds. Senator Bacon indicated he is interested in seeing the sculpture placed, and said he would look for ways to help Ms. Fulford, the sculptor, raise funds. He explained that the acceptance is suspended, but that he and Ms. Contiguglia will help encourage donors. He said he would contact the Cultural Arts Council of Estes Park, to see if they would resume their efforts to raise funds for the sculpture and its placement.
