says the local newspaper.
Grammar school students who attend the village's YMCA After-School Program, painted the signs that thank their grandparents, the library, volunteers, fire department, medical experts...you name it. Slogans were created by students, as well.
'It’s the second year for a program designed to create an upbeat mood and
atmosphere for those traveling along the town’s main drags...Participating youngsters not only hand-paint the signs, but also must
give presentations on the concept at service organization meetings, all
part of their 'service learning project' at the YMCA program," notes the news piece.
