West Gardiner Looking for Donations for New Town Signs
West Gardiner needs donations for welcome signs... again.
The central Maine town is once again asking for donations to put up welcome signs after vandals stole three signs and damaged a fourth this month. West Gardiner first posted welcome signs at the entrances to town about five years ago following a fundraising campaign that covered all costs.
Margaret Peacock, originator of the sign project, says the welcome signs represent both community pride and the town's welcoming spirit.
The handmade signs cost $450 each. Officials say enough donations have been made to pay for 1 ½ signs.
The stolen signs were posted along Bog Hill Road, Neck Road and Route 126. The damaged sign was located on Hallowell-Litchfield Road.
It's not known if police have any suspects in the crime.
