Some time ago Glen Brendal and Eugene Winicker worked to obtain a sign that would mark the entrance of our property for decades to come. It was done at a time when the society didn’t have much money and what little it did have was designated to be spent ushering 765 into the 90’s. Understanding the lasting power of our organization, it’s validity in acquisition was agreed upon and the sign was obtained. Whether we paid for the sign to be made or the labor was donated has been lost to history but we do know that Eugene Winicker (Steve Winicker’s Father) procured and donated the redwood and Glen Brendal procured and applied the paint. It offered a welcome to those that visited our Magnificent Machine at our Edgerton Road property.
25 plus years later the sign is seeing a second life as it has been completely restored by a crew of volunteers led by Steve Winicker.
The sign is proudly back in it’s home welcoming guests to our property for another twenty years and more.
