Bigfork’s Sculpture Project to commemorate Elmer Sprunger

By Catherine Haug, July 12, 2014

The Bigfork Chamber of Commerce and CFBB (Community Foundation for a Better Bigfork) plan to commemorate Elmer Sprunger with a statue by Eric Thorsen in the Sculpture Garden. To reach their goal, they need the help of our community. To learn more about the project, or to donate, see:
