Jan Stilson from the Blackhawk Restoration Project stopped by the show to let us know about their progress and what you can do to help. 

When the project began they were looking to raise $350,000 to match the grant they received from the state.

They have since raised $210,000 and are getting close to their goal.

Hopefully, they can get this done this year and the Blackhawk statue can be restored to its glory by early next Spring.

If you'd like to help out you can donate or find more information here.
