The full committee with the exception of Paul Beaver, who was absent for the evening.

An interesting side note: JoAnne Marlin sits in an antique chair. It and its twin next to her are from the old state school, Lincoln Developmental Center.


Seagraves talks about how the model was made and how the life-size version will be assembled.

When his life-size piece is complete, it will be taken to a nearby foundry and deconstructed into pieces for casting.

Details are important to the artist.  Lincoln's tie is notably crooked on the model, intentionally. It is reported that most of the time Lincoln's tie was in disarray.

County board member Gene Rohlfs and wife Wanda Lee, who is on the statue committee, chat with Seagraves.


At the end of the evening, everyone was invited to enjoy a piece of Mary Todd cake.

It was an invitation very few could refuse.
