“We’re Rebuilding” signs begin to crop up

     The rebirth of spring is almost here and the first “We’re Rebuilding” sign has been planted in front of the future American Legion Post 568 location in Greenville.

     “At least four dozen more will be installed over the next week or so, with many more to follow,” according to Lee Anne Schramel, Sign Project Coordinator.

     Created and sponsored by Plumas Strong and the Greenville Rotary Club, the signs are designed to illustrate the extraordinary spirit and tie to the land shared by so many members of the Greenville, Indian Falls and Canyon Dam communities in the aftermath of the devastating Dixie Fire of the summer of 2021.

      “Knowing which of your neighbors are staying is critical if you are weighing the decision of whether or not you’ll rebuild,” said Schramel.

     John Banks, Sr., Commander of Post 568, said there was no question whether they would rebuild.

     “Our post is inextricably bound to this community; the health of our veterans and rebuilding are our top priorities.”

     The signs (including installation) may be requested at no charge by businesses, organizations, and homeowners who have started the rebuilding process on their land. See www.PlumasStrong.com for more information and to request a sign.
