Phase 1 “The Plaque is Back!’

 

 On June 6th 2014 the new McBain Plaque came home. Three years from the somber day we all learned from Tom Bean of the vandalism that befell the our family land.

Moira Geoffrion,  recently retired head of the University of Arizona Art Department created our new plaque. There were several goals in the replacement design.  First, should the new plaque look like bronze.  Second it most be made of materials that do not have the inherent value of bronze.  Third must stand the test of time.  Well done Moira!

Thanks to Lisa McFarlane who penned a new sign to help this plaque stay in the park.

BRONZE, BRASS OF WORTH
MONEY I AM NOT
LEAVE IT TO A FRUGAL SCOT
SO STEAL ME NOT
LEAST YOU BE CURSED
AND DIE AMONGST
ALL KINSMEN FIRST
