Fletcher completed a commissioned sculpture of Arnold Palmer for Cherry Hills Country Club.  The piece commemorates the victory by Palmer in the 1960 U.S. Open Golf Championship held at Cherry Hills.  Later, a smaller sculpture of the same pose was commissioned.  Number one of that edition was purchased for Mr. Palmer and resides in his Latrobe, Pennsylvania collection.
 
Spanning over thirty years, Fletcher has received awards of recognition both regionally and nationally.  "Awards are impressive on a resume and medals are significant but often get lost in some drawer.  At this point in life, I strive the nod of appreciation from people who admire my work, respect my work and choose to bring it into their lives."
