Some of our projects were difficult, took much time and required substantial funding. Now and then, something good happened with virtually no effort. After mentioning to City officials that we wanted Saint-Norbert more clearly identified, they quickly came forward with a plan for a tall standard to do just that.

They asked our input into the design and from that came the design with the image of an oxcart and a nun driving it. That image was to commemorate the arrival of a grey nun in 1859 who came to establish a school in St. Norbert.
