JOE MCCLUSKEY DAY IN MANCHESTER

Description: HAVE A CUP O’ JOE FOR JOE ON MAY 20TH – JOE MCCLUSKEY DAY IN MANCHESTER.

The Sculpture Project is partnering with eleven Manchester businesses on a special fundraising project.
The Town of Manchester is designating Saturday, May 20, 2017 as Joe McCluskey Day, honoring this Olympic medalist and four-time Manchester Road Race winner who is widely considered to be Manchester’s greatest athlete.
The community is invited to help raise funds to create a life-size bronze statue of Joe McCluskey by purchasing a cup of “Joe” at participating businesses on Saturday, May 20th .
This sculpture will be placed along the Manchester Road Race route in the East Coast Greenway parklet at the corner of Highland and Wyllys Streets. The McCluskey sculpture is the first of three planned sculptures of Manchester citizens who have made important contributions to the Manchester community.
