DEDICATION BRINGS FORMER AND CURRENT
NEIGHBORHOOD RESIDENTS TOGETHER

August 18, 2002
The Harry Whitehorse sculpture, One Child Spinning Through Mother Sky, was dedicated in a colorful and moving ceremony at the 18th annual Bayview Ethnic Fest in Madison, Wisconsin.  Under a sunny sky, past Greenbush residents shared their memories while current Bayview residents celebrated their unique neighborhood.
Highlights of the dedication include a short speech given by Fran Remeika, one of the founding members of the Bayview Foundation; an affirmation from Nino Amato, whose aunt and uncle lived where the tree once grew, that despite the physical destruction, the Greenbush still lives; dancers representing Native American, Chinese, and Scottish culture; the Ho Chunk drum group, the Lake Delton Singers; an Honor Dance that snaked through the festival grounds and included much of the crowd; a remarkable Tai Chi dance; and the presence of the children and grandchildren of Tony Raimondo, the man who originally planted the tree.
