The Migrant Sculpture celebrates and honors migrant workers and their contributions to our area for over 80 years.
Our first sculpture contribution was toward the sculpture to honor Kaleva’s long serving mayor, Robert Rengo. Shortly after that one of our board members suggested we look at doing something to recognize the contribution of the migrant workers to the area over the years. The board liked this idea and soon Dewey Blocksma joined us and enthusiastically presented a vision to our committee which we thought was perfect. We had Marta Delgado on our committee and input from other former migrant workers. The grant from 100 Women Who Care and the Spirit of Giving Fund of the MCCF as well as some individual contributions allowed us to move ahead with this project.
