Talk about building a legacy.
Harold and Alice Weed of North Mankato commissioned a sculpture called Delivering For You from Bad River Art Studio in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
The sculpture is being dedicated Tuesday. The public is welcome to attend the 3 p.m. program where the sculpture will take center stage.
It’s a 6-foot-tall bronze statue of a letter carrier delivering mail and it will become a permanent part of CityArt Mankato. The sculpture will be staged in front of the former post office on South Second Street in Mankato.
The Weeds commissioned the sculpture via the Mankato Area Foundation as a way to “give back,” Harold said, as his career was with the U.S. Postal Service.
