Mayor Chuck Hazama was a man of vision. Sculptor, Chuck Gagnon, said, "The Peace Fountain wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Chuck Hazama." He was the first emeritus board member of the Charles E. Gagnon Museum and Sculpture Garden. He will be missed for his sincere respect, dedication, and caring for his community. His legacy includes the permeant, and last peace fountain to inspire world peace.
