The gift was provided by Tube Dude, the company that makes metal stick figures with a smiley face. They are manufactured from marine grade aluminum and painted in bright colors. They are located on St. Armand's Circle.
These figures first appeared holding mailboxes at Sarasota residences and soon spread. Now they appear throughout Sarasota’s business district advertising everything from beauty shops to real estate offices. They are a great treat of the tourists.
Scott Gerber the creator of these wonderful figures, donated a bright yellow smiley face to Sister Cities to present to the Mayor, of Tel Mond, Israel our sister on our recent visit.
Thank you Scott.
