Albert Lea Group Raising Money for a Bronze Statue of Marion Ross
There is a group in Albert Lea that's trying to raise money to get a bronze statue of Marion Ross built in front of the Performing Arts Theatre. They have a Facebook group put together to promote their fundraising.
The group seems to have been put together at the beginning of June. It's called "Marion Ross Statue" and they have some information about the statue and fundraising, too. One of the fundraising options is to purchase a brick paver to go by the Marion Ross statue. You can find info about that HERE.
A way that they are getting the word out about their fundraising is by putting together some goofy skits! Their first video was shared a couple of weeks ago "starring our very own (look-a-likes) Mrs. C & The Fonz!" Check out the short video below:
For those that do not know, Marion Ross used to live in Albert Lea. She lived there as a child until she moved to the Twin Cities to pursue her dream of acting.
