SWANNANOA NEEDS YOU!
Help Us Raise Funds for a New “Welcome to Swannanoa” Sign
Friends and Neighbors of Swannanoa (FANS) is launching a community fundraising campaign to raise money for a new “Welcome to Swannanoa” sign. The current sign, located in front of the Swannanoa Ingles, is over 50 years old, and has deteriorated beyond repair. It’s time for a new sign that will welcome residents and visitors to Swannanoa, and reflect the pride we all have in our beautiful community.
The new 3.5′ x 7′ sign (see design above) will be two-sided so that it can be seen by folks entering Swannanoa from the east as well as the west. It features the words “Welcome to Swannanoa” beneath a colorful mountain scene, and will be mounted on a river rock base, in honor of the Swannanoa River. The design will be sandblasted and painted on long-lasting cedar wood.
The total cost of the sign, to be created by Jimmy Lamb of Lamb Sign Company, is $4,000. Several FANS board members and other Swannanoa residents have already come forward with $2,000 in matching funds. This means that every donation from the community will be matched dollar-for-dollar until we reach the fundraising goal of $4,000. We’re half way there! Will you help us close the gap?
