According to Rathbun, the street art project could not have been accomplished without the help and support of many people.
"To start with, the downtown partnership is so appreciative of the generous cooperation of George Demers, owner of Adirondack Furniture by George on Montcalm Street, who hand cut all the wooden soldier templates at his cost, solely for this street art project," Rathbun said. "Added to this is the generosity and cooperation of more than 60 project sponsors, artists and local businesses that adopted and cared for some of the soldiers, putting them on the street and storing them inside daily."
Rathbun hopes all sponsors, artists, families and interested people attend the auction.
