Attention Nauvoo-Colusa Alumni and Friends! Our esteemed Viking, Erik, (Did you know he had a name?) who has watched over our school since he was donated many years ago, is badly in need of some attention. Standing guard, in the elements, watching over our school and its children has taken its toll on him. He needs some repairs and paint. Erik will also be getting a new view, as he will need to be moved to accommodate some new construction. We received an estimate for repairs, which is in the neighborhood of $7000. Erik will also need a new concrete pad to stand on. A few years ago, we put out some feelers to see if anyone would be interested in donating to these repairs, and received a very positive response. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to put things in a holding pattern. Erik was recently mentioned in an article in the March 2019 issue of Illinois Country Living magazine. This, along with the construction project, has brought the idea of getting him repaired back up to the forefront. We are now ready to move forward on getting Erik the Viking back to his proud glory. We have an account at the State Bank of Nauvoo called, Nauvoo-Colusa Boosters Account. Anyone willing to donate can send donations, made out to that account, to State Bank of Nauvoo at P.O. Box 218, Nauvoo, IL 62354.
