Default .... and, here's the new sign

...... and, here's the new sign ... https://www.watervillevalley.org/home/news/new-sign ..... at about 45' x 15' .....it must be the largest "Welcome to Town" sign in the State of NH ... close to same size as a semi tractor trailer's van trailer

It looks like it has been there for years ..... is a great fit ..... and looks best when covered with snow, all over, the day after a snow storm, on a sunny day.

And supposedly, the decision to make this sign was placed on the town ballot in March 2018, and it got passed by exactly one vote. How about that!

All things considered ..... after a few month's in place ...... it's a wee bit too plain Jane ..... what can be done to jazz it up ..... maybe a smiling snow flake face that says "think snow" like those old bumper stickers used to say ....... placed on an upper corner ....... yes, that's what it needs ...... a happy snow flake! ... ... think snow!

And, just read a newspaper article on the new, huge sign in the latest WV Wig Wag, the local town paper, and learned this sign is partially located on federal property, in the White Mountain National Forest, within the U.S. Dept of Agriculture and the Forest Service, and partially on town land next to the big town entry road, and absolutely nothing on the sign including the seasonal icons can be changed without first getting permission from the WMNF, so it is unlikely it will ever evolve into anything like the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign ......... oh well ..... and, any pink flamingos perched out front will probably be removed ... too bad.

Maybe the Forest Service would agree to Smokey Bear getting on board this large sign here? .......... seems like Smokey could be a good fit here .... like .... 'Only you can come to Waterville Valley!' .... and don't forget to bring your green stuff ...... credit/debit card or cash! ...... (Smokey's famous smiling but serious face here!)
