A new sign has been erected along the highway near Wood, welcoming passers-by and visitors. “Welcome to Wood” is printed across one side and “Ya’ll come back again” reads the other side. A photograph depicting Wood with the grain elevator highlighting the landscape provides the backdrop for the piece.
The project has been in the works for four years and came to fruition on Saturday when many from the community came together on the north side of the highway near D&E Food and Fuel to put up the sign and put up an eye-catching brick surround.
The project is a Memorial to the people of the community of Wood and was funded by Memorial donations received through the years.
