Delta Park Project
The purpose of the MG Eldon Bargewell Foundation (EBF) is to honor Hoquiam native Major General Eldon Bargewell USA (ret.) by building Delta Park. Our goal is to raise $300,000 to erect a statue of Eldon and three plaques showing his service to our country, his leadership and the honors he earned, including the Distinguished Service Cross (our nation’s second highest award for valor), 6 bronze stars (3 with V for valor and 3 for his service), and 4 purple hearts.
Donations will also be used to landscape the park and provide a fund to maintain the park in the future.
Robert W. Droll, Landscape Architect, PS has donated his time and talents to develop a landscaping plan for the park.
Rip and Alison Caswell (Caswell Sculpture) have been selected to create the statue. Rip is a Montesano native and their studio is in Troutdale, Oregon. Rip is excited about coming back to Grays Harbor to do our project. Read more about Rip’s Grays Harbor roots in this 2007 Daily World article by Tom Quigg.
