While excavating for the expansion project at Golden Pond Assisted Living, work crews unearthed a fully intact, four foot statue of the Virgin Mary.

“People are amazed,” said Executive Director William Marr. “Some people were close to tears when they saw it.”

Marr says he can’t believe that the statue did not get damaged. It is just about the full size of the scoop on the back hoe and it came up all in one piece. The workers discarded it and went on with their excavating, but Marr sent someone to pick up the statue and store it in a safe place.
