I would like to have the following message published in the next Blackhawk Carver news letter that is published.

Rockford Discovery Center

Totem Pole

Jack Litchenheld a member of the Blackhawk Carvers has volunteered to head up a carving group to carve a science type totem pole for the Discovery Center. The pole will be about 14ft high and 14 inches square with 4 or 5 character figures. These scientific figures have been defined and will be roughed in by chainsaw. Jack is looking for volunteers to help in finalizing carving the figures. Carving will start in September of this year, the pole to be erected in the year 2000 at the Discovery Center. Here is a great chance to be part of a neat project, call Jack at 963-3466 your help is needed.
