Local businesses donate time and labor for new Greenville Girls Softball Association entrance sign
GREENVILLE – The Greenville Girls Softball Association (GGSA) has a new sign at the north entrance of the facility thanks to a community project by Wintrow Signs, Hupman Lawn Care and Landscaping, Ansonia Lumber and Classic Comfort Heating and Supply.
“It is amazing to have the community support for a project like this,” said GGSA President, Eric Fellers. “Obviously our old sign was in pretty bad shape. Joe Wintrow spearheaded the effort and got some community people together and made us a really nice sign that sets the place apart. We’re really appreciative of all the community support that we get not just with the sign but for everything we do here.”
The current sign at the entrance of the park was in need of overdue repair but was not in the budget so plans were made to temporarily fix the old sign until funds became available.
Joe Wintrow of Wintrow Signs designed a new sign for GGSA and with the help of several local businesses teamed up to donate the new sign, landscaping and flag pole.
“The community does so much for us and it was time for us to give back to them,” said Wintrow.
Wintrow Signs donated the fabricating and sign, Hupman Lawn Care donated the landscaping, Ansonia Lumber donated the treated lumber and Aaron Kruckeberg of Classic Comfort donated the new flag pole.
“We are happy to donate the posts they needed to put up the new sign,” said Ansonia Lumber Manager, Mitch McCabe. “It’s a great organization with a lot going on, they take good care of their facility so we are happy to be a part of it and donate the posts.”
“We are very pleased to help with the sign project,” said Jason Hupman. “It is good to help GGSA and is good for the community.”
“The old sign was small and falling apart and this one is big and everyone sees it,” Fellers stated. “We have the new flag pole and we can put our game day flags out for the varsity team. It kind of sets the place off when you pull in and see this big sign. I’ve seen a lot of facilities in the state and I think we’re close to the top.”
