Save Hobo Joe

Hobo Joe needs our help.  The Buckeye Main Street Coalition has purchased Hobo Joe to save him from destruction.  We would like to repair and repaint him and resurrect him in Historic Downtown Buckeye for all to enjoy--we now have a home for Hobo Joe.  But we need your help--the cost of fiberglass repairs, paint and a new concrete foundation is expensive--but not more than our own Hobo Joe deserves. We need to provide storage and place for rehab work to begin.  We would  appreciate any help you can provide--even it if it is just a voice to support our efforts. Thank you!

Hobo Joe is now in "Hobo Rehab" and is being sandblasted this week. We continue to work on the site plan. Buckeye citizens have responded with many donations of time and materials. Port Heiden and crew have moved Joe. Quikcrete is donating concrete, numerous others are donating time and labor and our total cost to get Joe back up have gone down dramatically. We need to immediately raise another $4,000 to pay for the paint. Please donate today.

Ken--Hobo Joe is a self described "World Traveler, Philosopher and Connoisseur of Good Food" so no doubt has traveled to the deep south. Actually, he probably has traveled anywhere he could get to free on a passing train and dine on any free meal he could find. He's a lovable sort so hopefully no one is offended. We appreciate your support.

Has anyone researched Hobo Joe's past to see if he has any ties to the deep south or allegiance to the Confederacy? Sure don't want to upset any Snowflakes!
