Sign of the times

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

There's a new sign at the four-way stop in Greensville and it's attracting a lot of attention.

Located on the southwest corner of Brock Road and Old Brock Road in the parking area of the Greensville store, the sign welcomes visitors on one side and informs them about the location of local attractions on the other.

The structure was installed about three weeks ago as a project of the Greensville Optimist Club. But Dave Clark, an Optimist member who spearheaded the project, said it would not have happened without the support of many area businesses that generously donated materials.

The Optimists undertook the job of restoring the sign to replace one that had deteriorated and fallen down. They collected information about local attractions, including old mills and the community's first post office, to accompany a map on the backside of the sign. The map, which carries photos of historic sites and shows the location of scenic waterfalls in the area, has also been updated to include the location of the nearby Optimist Community Park and walking trail.

Members of the service club looked after building the frame and installing the sign. The rest of the project came together with the help of local businesses, including Efcom Ltd. and Grisdale Enterprises Ltd. of Greensville, RONA Cashway and Turkstra Lumber of Dundas, Pacific Cedar Shake and Shingle of Freelton and Hammond Metal Systems of Hamilton. Also providing support were R & M Custom Signs and Engraving of Dundas and Rick Tew, a Greensville volunteer who built the roof over the sign.

The sign is aluminum and is protected with a transparent acrylic plastic covering to help ensure many years of use. Visitors to the area have already remarked that it is a very useful tool for learning more about local sites of interest and their location.
