Statue of late owner completes Mondor Gardens

June 22, 2012

PAWTUCKET — As tranquil and serene Mondor Gardens is, something was missing. That “something” was a remembrance designed specifically to preserve the memory of late Pawtucket Red Sox owner Ben Mondor.
Upon agreeing that a statue would prove fitting, PawSox President Mike Tamburro and General Manager Lou Schwechheimer reached out to the only person they felt would capture Mondor in the light that would display his affinity for PawSox baseball.
Turns out that someone was a familiar face – Carol “Tayo” Heuser, a lady whose artistic talents are on display throughout McCoy Stadium.

After Labor Day, the paddleboats will be available on weekends.
