Derry signseeks adoption
DERRY — 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 Scouts that might like to adopt the sign as a community service project, can contact her via the Conservation Commission at 434-6539.
