Town Welcome Sign Restoration Project

Ballico-Cressey 4-H | Merced County Status: Completed Categories: Citizenship Youth Leader: Nathann | Age: 15

The town of Ballico is a small country town with good people, and is a fine community. The Ballico town sign was erected many years ago and is a welcoming for people driving through or visiting our small town.  The sign had become weathered and was in dire need of restoration.

How has 4-H helped?

The Ballico-Cressey 4-H club annually rakes, pulls weeds and does general clean up around the sign.  However, this year the club members chose to do much, much more.  The club created a plan to completely restore the sign with new paint, lettering, restored framing and shingles along with new plants and vegetation.

The impact

Ballico-Cressey 4-H worked with local partners including The Sign Works, Ballico Cressey Taiko, Neighborhood Watch, and the Ballico Fire Department to  restore the town sign. A rectangular 4-H logo was included in the sign.
