West Brattleboro Association is seeking donations for new signs as part of the organization’s efforts to get traffic to take a closer look at this section of town and all that it has to offer.

With the help of Keene Signworx the WBA has developed a design for the new, free-standing signs. The association plans to place them on town-owned land just west of the triangle at the Creamery Bridge and at the western end of the village on the property occupied by the Chelsea Royal Diner (courtesy of owner Todd Darrah) so visitors coming eastbound will benefit. The primary image in the signs will be a handsome graphic of the Creamery Bridge.

The estimate for these signs is approximately $3,000 each, and the group is currently raising money to help make it a reality. WBA would like to place the signage later this spring and is hoping the community will want to participate. The association will also be specifically requesting contributions from businesses along the Route 9 corridor.

To make a donation, send a check (made out to the West Brattleboro Association) to WBA Treasurer Stewart McDermet at 62 Butterfield Road, Dummerston, VT 05301. Or for more information, contact WBA President Michael Bosworth at 802-258-6475.
