About the Bench: 

Carole Finn, local artist and community booster, donated the dry stone bench in memory of her late husband Don. Measuring 7 feet by 3 feet, the granite top of the bench weighs 1,400 pounds, with the many smaller rocks weighing in at 4,500 pounds. In the centre of the bench there is a mossy stone collected from the Finn's farm. 'Spirit of the Wild' took artist, Aaron Galbraith, 7 days to make.
