A big, bright sign that was in Trinity Lutheran Church’s northeast parking lot, at the corner of North Georgia Ave. and 3rd Street NE, Tuesday evening was met with enthusiasm from some neighbors.
A tip led me to the sign, and as I snapped some photos and video I was approached by a couple of neighbors.
One young lady who lived about two houses way said she and her friends noticed the sign and “thought it was cool. It didn’t bother us at all.”
Another woman, Elisa, who lives directly across the street from where the sign was placed, said “I like it. The colors are vibrant, like my bike.”
Getting in the spirit of the situation, Elisa got out her custom-made bike with its own bright lights and took it for a spin for us all to enjoy.
The sign was put in the parking lot by Johnson Sign Company, owner Dean Johnson said, as a test run for the church, which is deciding whether to buy a similar sign for its use on a new pavilion they are building on the north west corner of their property. The sign was there for only about three hours. It was run on a generator, which made a pretty good rattle. The sign lit up the neighborhood with different colors as the screens changed.
