I set up an appointment with Kitty Pope to discuss this and drop off the scale model sculpture for the library for them to keep for a few weeks and generate public interest. She loved the idea and so did the library staff gathered for the drop off and discussion. Lisa Cunningham issued a press release to local media and they acted quickly. Tricia Stevenson of Rogers TV contacted me to set up a time to be on the television talk show Inside Guelph. Jessica Lovell of the Guelph Tribune contacted me to set up a time for her to photograph a session with the public helping build the sculpture. The Fountain Pen on line newspaper published the invitation for help. Guelph Mercury published the invitation too. And it worked wonderfully. People started emailing me to set up times for them to participate.
There is a lot more work to do in building the sculpture. It needs four coats of Winterstone plus sanding and sealing. Then the base needs slate tiles applied so I hope people keep volunteering. My prediction is that I'll need help for another month.
