November 12, 2020 City Council Meeting
25. Approval of a Resolution Accepting a Monetary Donation from the Bonaventure Historical Society for the Cleaning and Restoration of the Silence Statue Located in Laurel Grove North Cemetery
Strategic Priority
Good Government

The Bonaventure Historical Society wishes to donate funds in the amount of $4,120 for the cleaning and restoration of the Silence Statue located in Laurel Grove North Cemetery. The Silence Statue was vandalized on multiple instances throughout July 2020, causing extensive damage. In response, a local tour provider, Shannon Scott Tours, organized an online fundraising campaign to raise funds for the cleaning and restoration of the Silence Statue. Shannon Scott Tours presented the donation to the Bonaventure Historical Society with the intent to pass the proceeds to the City of Savannah. The Bonaventure Historical Society wishes to present the donation to the City of Savannah, which will then be used to cover expenses related to the removal of graffiti and the repair of damages to the Silence Statue.
