The metal trades class at the Charles May Center in Mount Morris is creating a collection of steel sculptures to benefit a charity for the third year in a row.
In 2011, the class crafted steel angels which benefited the Teresa House. In 2012, the class made steel blossoms to benefit the Red Cross. This year, the sculptures are birds, and auction sales will benefit Wayland’s Vincent House Comfort Care Facility, which uses a dove for its logo.
The students’ instructor is Olie Olson, who won a News 8 Golden Apple Award for being an outstanding teacher in December of 2012.
The birds will be unveiled on May 11, when businesses and organizations in the villages of Dansville and Wayland will display them inside and outside their buildings.
On June 1, the sculptures will be auctioned at the Moose Lodge in Dansville.
