2000: June, 2001 - Building Communities
The bronze sculpture, Building Communities, by Geert Maas was initially installed on Main Street behind The Winfield Shopping Centre before it came to its final place in front of the Municipal Offices.
The 286-pound cast bronze sculpture is a series of stylized faces, which represent different people in the community, the spirit of our people, strength of family, importance of our youth and hope and inspiration for the future.
It took five months to complete. Maas gave the District of Lake Country a bargain at $25,000, as a project of this nature would cost $37,500 normally. Part of the funding for the bronze sculpture came from government grants.
