Big Ole holds still for repairs
The job of repairing Big Ole's wing reached new heights today, Thursday, when a worker took measurements of the statue's helmet.
A strong wind blew off the left wing of the helmet a couple weeks ago. The 3-foot-long wing is expected to be fastened securely in place by next Wednesday.
Big Ole is owned by the Runestone Museum. A “Get Well Big Ole” Facebook page has been set up to offer well wishes to the popular Alexandria landmark, which stands guard on North Broadway.
