Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

Philadel­phia Fly­ers founder Ed Snider will be hon­oured with a nine-foot bronze statue out­side the Wells Fargo Cen­ter. Snider founded the team in the 1960s and re­mained chair­man un­til his death in April 2016. The statue will be un­veiled on Oct. 19 to mark the 50th an­niver­sary of the Fly­ers’ first home game in 1967.

Chad Fisher, of Fisher Sculp­ture of Dills­burg, Penn­syl­va­nia, cre­ated and built the 1,300-pound bronze statue, which will stand on a three-foot base en­cased by solid gran­ite.
