Butterfly bench dedicated at Batavia Peace Garden

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, Peace Garden.

Friends of the Batavia Peace Garden dedicated a new bench -- a bench with the wings of a butterfly -- Wednesday afternoon.

The steel was laser cut by Oxbo International, of Byron, and the welding was completed by Barone's Welding, of Batavia. Paint was supplied by Mosman's and the Melody Barbeau Family, of Florida. The painting was completed by Old World Collision.

The bench is beautiful.

I always knew Barb was talented, but 'baking' a dedication speech takes that talent to a new high. All I could envision was...

Four and twenty butterflys baked in a pie.
When the pie was open the butterflys took flight.
