Community State Bank in Lamar donated a new electric sign at the Community Building. Plans were announced in April and work got underway in the early summer.  Work crews completed about 99% of the project on Wednesday, August 3rd.

“All it needs is some fine tuning and then we can begin to program all the local information into the sign,” explained Rick Akers, Lamar Parks and Recreation Director. Kirk Crespin, Lamar City Councilman and the IT/IS Officer at Community State Bank, remarked that this was a way that his bank could make a donation to the community that would have a lasting impact.  “We may have some kind of dedication ceremony in the future, but plans aren’t specific at this point,” he stated.

The sign’s base was constructed first in the northeast corner of the complex, just off the exit and entrances to the Community Building’s parking lot. Once that masonry work had cured, the electric signage panel was put into place, leveled and connected for electricity.  It measures 13 feet tall by 14 feet wide and will eventually replace the older sign that is near the roofline on the eastern side of the community building.
