THE STORY:

Help The Friends of Belle Isle and be part of saving a Detroit classic for generations to come. The money raised will be used to replace the damaged Scott Fountain's Pewabic Tiles.

On September 17, 2010, in an effort to repair the leaking Scott Fountain, the beautiful Pewabic Tiles that once adorned the rim of the fountain for 85 years were removed during the process of re-cementing the basin.  The Friends of Belle Isle together with Pewabic Pottery are working with the City of Detroit, Departments of Recreation and General Services to replicate these beautiful tiles originally created and designed by Mary Chase Perry Stratton.  Efforts are estimated at about $150,000.  Roberta Henrion, FOBI President, stated that she would like to see this happen in as short of time as possible and is firing up efforts to raise the necessary funding. 

Please donate and help to replace these tiles to their rightful place on the Scott Fountain.

Thank you for your interest and generousity,

Roberta Henrion
