The town of Willsboro will host a fareWELL to Winter event March 3.
Signs designed be a Willsboro resident now welcome travelers and those returning home.
The town of Willsboro recently erected two new welcome signs along State Route 22 (Lake Shore Road and Mountain Road sections), welcoming and bidding farewell to travelers on the edge of the northern and southern town lines.
“The Willsboro Beautification Committee put in $3,500 toward the signs, and we had some very generous donors who helped us,” Joanne Betters of the committee said. “We also use the profits that we receive from the pavers at the visitors center, and the town board contributed the rest.”
The signs were designed by Willsboro resident Joe Robinson, who presented the designs to the committee last spring. Once approved, the signs were created by Daniels Signs out of Chazy.
“They look really good,” Erica Manning of the committee said. “We were pleased with the design and the work. They have also weatherized each sign so they should be able to handle the elements for a while.”
Betters said that the committee is also looking to refurbish a sign that was located at the town water tower and place that on Middle Road.
