Long Description:
This statue was made by the students of Thousand Islands Secondary School and was made financially possible by a grant from the City of Brockville and the local Lions Club.

Con Darling was a local gentleman who always dressed up in a clown suit and pushed a chicken in a baby carriage in parades. He even lead the Grey Cup Parade in Toronto one year. This statue is a fitting tribute to a great humanitarian, who knew how to make people laugh and it's thanks to groups like the Lions Club who made the project possible.
