Lyon County (George) Freedom Rock®

Below is a picture of the George (Lyon County) Freedom Rock. As always, I'm in awe of my husband's artwork and I think he did a fantastic job! This is his explanation of the George Freedom Rock:

"The Freedom Rock for Lyon County in George, Iowa was finished on Sunday August 11th but I waited for some pics without a tent over the rock for a better view. The road facing side features a nighttime scene circa World War One. There is a lone soldier waiting to board a train at the old George, Iowa Depot. The lone soldier represents Jack Sauter the soldier from George killed in WWI. In the smokestack of the train is what Jack may have been thinking before boarding the train going off to war. In the background there are fireworks, which are important to the town of George. The eagle and American Flag are self explanatory but on the other feature side I painted all 5 branches marching in a parade because the 4th of July is a point of pride in George. The people of George are very welcoming so if you're in the North West corner of the state there are a few Freedom Rocks in the area as I've finished rocks in Hawarden and George and will be completing the Freedom Rock in Lake Park in September"

On a personal note, here is a fun picture of Reagan (our dog) and Indie on the way to George. We had a lot of fun accompanying Bubba on this trip and are so proud of him for all of his hard work. We love being his support team and we're so blessed to have our work be a family affair. For more information on The Iowa Freedom Rock Tour, click here:
