Your Opportunity Sign Replaced
The "Centralia Your Opportunity" sign has received a much needed face lift. The historic sign had fallen into disrepair and has been replaced thanks to the efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, Centralia Image Committee and the City of Centralia. Image Committee Chairman Todd Dobbs said, "After seeking infput from a variety of interested parties and much analysis, it was determined that the simplest way to recreate the message the sign originally intended to deliver, was to replace the letters and to light the sign for all to see." The letters taken from the sign were found to be made of wood and in an extreme state of deterioration. The new letters have been made from exterior grade material, painted and sealed so as to not fall into the same state if disrepair.
