OWEGO (WBNG) — Just in time for Strawberry Fest in Downtown Owego, the Baker Fireman’s Fountain is being re-installed.
The Owego Hose team sent the statue down south to a company called Robinson Iron to be restored.
After months of being restructured and painted, the memorable firefighter is ready to make its appearance once again.
“There’s two more pieces we have to do after today,” said Owego Hose team volunteer, Patrick Gavin. “But it’s coming into conclusion and we’re excited about that.”
Gavin says they raised $115,000 for the fountain.
While there is still work to be done, Gavin says they hope to have it all complete by this July.
