Statue replacement

If you see local artist Tim Turner, remember to thank him for replacing the soldier’s cross statue in front of the Post 88 Binns building.

Turner noticed that the statue had fallen over and went by to fix it, but noticed the feet had rot and provided a new one. The statue had been purchased by the group several years prior.
