Greendale residents may have noticed the Norman Rockwell statue missing from its usual place in the Village Center.
Norman has gone into hibernation for the winter.
Grandhaven Manager Anne Marie Pierce, owners of the statue, said that the corner he resides at is where they pile snow.
"If it ever snows that is! As such we needed to remove him so we can be ready for snow plowing season," Pierce said. "We didn’t want him sitting under a big snow bank!"
The plan is to bring him back once the snow and ice melt and signs of Spring appear. There is no specific date but most likely end of March, early April.
The sculpture of the 20th century illustrator, located on the southeast corner of Broad Street and Northway, was approved by the Greendale Village Board this past summer.
Roy Reiman, owner of Grandhaven, has said the sculpture — which was privately paid for — has the potential to attract more visitors to the Village Center.
