Shepard sign needs help
A sign on the historic property belonging to the family of America’s first man in space Alan B. Shepard Jr. needs some tender loving care.
A Shepard sign on the East Derry land needs some upgrades and improvements, according to Conservation Commission Chairman Margie Ives.
Ives said the sign has stood on the property for a long time and it’s getting extremely faded. Ives said anyone with ideas on how to move forward with updating the sign, or a group of Scout that might like to adopt the sign as a community service project can contact her via the Conservation Commission at 434-6539.
