“Leadership Mecosta, our community leadership program, is sponsoring a community art project.
“Area businesses and organizations are sponsoring fiberglass statues of more than 30 bulldogs, 3 by 4 feet. We chose a bulldog because it’s the mascot of Ferris State University, our local college.
“Our job now is to promote the heck out of this so that people will come to Big Rapids and the surrounding area to see these dogs artistically designed by local artists. Our web page is at http://www.yearofthedawg.com
“Other communities have done similar projects. Chicago did cows. South Haven, Michigan did bears. And Midland, Michigan did Trolls.
“Can your Hounds come up with some promotion ideas to pull tourists to Big Rapids to see these dawgs?”
