Oswego, NY -- The dedication of a new statue in honor of Dr. Mary Walker at the Oswego Town Hall has been postponed.
The Town of Oswego Historical Society had planned an April 30 dedication at the town hall at 2320 county Route 7. The society's board of trustees recently was notified by sculptor Sharon BuMann that she will be unable to present a completed monument by the deadline as a result of unforeseen delays in the project.
"Due to circumstances beyond our control, I regret to say that the planned dedication for April 30 has been postponed," said George DeMass, Oswego Town Historian and society trustee. "We are still very excited about the near completion of this project and it promises to be a memorable day for the town."
After the statue is complete and the site is prepared, a new dedication date will be set.
