The Town of Eagle installed three specially designed sculptures for the Christmas Holidays in the Eby Creek Road roundabouts. The sculptures represent the town’s outdoor activities and its historical past: a 12-foot cross-country skier, a 10-foot mountain bike and three wagon wheels. All three sculptures were wrapped entirely in LED lights by volunteers and installed by Eagle’s Public Works.
Eagle’s Board of Trustees approved $12,000 for the holiday decorations and the town manager and the Eagle Chamber of Commerce conceived of the idea of adding sculptures as well as lighting the Aspen and evergreen trees in the new roundabouts. Trinity Recycling fabricated the skier and the mountain bike from metal pipe and three-purchased wagon wheels were joined together with metal pipe.
Special appreciation goes to Charity, John and Christopher Batson, owners of The Eagle Pharmacy and Batsons Corner for covering the cost of these holiday decorations and for their enthusiastic support of the community.
Thanks to Bonfire Brewing Company for the use of their facility for wrapping the sculptures. Also, thanks to these volunteers for spending countless hours wrapping the sculptures: Renee Stracka, Berkshire Hathaway Colorado Properties; Addie Lagace, Slifer Designs; Taun Saunders,Circle-A Auto Repair; Mick Daly, Juice Plus+ and Town staff: Carla Nelson and Angela Hawkins with her daughter Kaylee and friend Tory Jorgenson.
The skier is wrapped in more than 2,000 LED lights and the bike in more than 1,500.
