Freedom Rock painting is underway at Kasson American Legion Post

Posted:
KASSON, Minn. (KTTC) -

Delivered at the beginning of July, work has been commissioned on the painting of a Freedom Rock at the Kasson American Legion Post.

But that wasn't the only thing going on at the Legion, they began their kickoff event for their American Legion Legacy Run.

Friday night's event was a fundraiser to help raise scholarships for families affected by 9/11.

Their run begins on Saturday and for anyone in attendance, they'll be able to check on the progress artist Ray Sorensen has made on the Freedom Rock.

"I've started a tour, a Freedom Rock Tour and so I go around and paint a different Freedom Rock in each location. I want to put at least one in all 50 states and so I arrived here a few days ago and I started art work a couple days ago and as you can see, I'm partially done," said Sorensen, Freedom Rock Artist.

Sorensen has worked on Freedom Rocks like this all throughout Iowa's 99 counties and makes each rock unique to the area it's in.

He says that this project in Kasson should be finished by the end of next week.
