If you have walked down the trail from the park behind the Elmwood Christian Church you probably noticed the new signs. The church put these up for people on the trail to see. One of these days when I'm up at sunrise I will go get a picture of the sunrise over the sign. The signs are fun and welcoming. Almost as much fun as Burma Shave signs!
