WHAT ARE THE PINK SIGNS BY THE ROAD FOR??
The pink signs down by the roadway are for a hearing that is required for a variance we need to obtain due to our church sign structure being too big according to the county ordinance. Since the sign structure has been there for 20 years this is a formality so we can move forward with replacing the old letter sign with a new digital LED sign.
NEW ECA NAMETAGS AVAILABLE FOR ORDERING
