In response to Mr. Saras and Mr. Flower finding a location for the beautiful neon signs that were such a part of our history and beauty of downtown Sunnyside at night time, I have always envisioned seeing those signs and more at the top of a hill, maybe by the old barn off I-82 exit 69 entering Sunnyside) lit up, on display for all entering or passing by Sunnyside to see and be curious about.
Just think about how that would be a "first" in our area or state, and what a draw! It could be expensive for "up keep" and keeping them safe for sure. However, I see the lights on at the South Hill park tennis courts/basketball courts all the time, and no one is there.
We need something to draw people into town, let's start with our beautiful "Neon" Light Show. This can't be as expensive as a whole buidling, holding un-lit neon signs. They are supposed to be outside ,anyway.
I wonder what happened to the little "Bunches Bees" sign, and so many others that have disappeared. I'd help with a committee to plan this one out.
