Brian Saby is a retired dentist from Sylvan Lake who was looking for something to do to keep busy. He asked local restaurateur Dave Corey if he had anything he needed done.
Corey had the idea for a new art piece on the side walk, and Saby went to work.
“He did a great job, absolutely fabulous,” Corey said.
The result of about three weeks of work was Pete, a happy and well prepared chef.
“I didn’t have a piece out before, we just had out little metal guy standing around the entrance,” Corey said.
The statue is on display outside of the restaurant on Lakeshore Drive now.
