One way to extend welcome is to help people find their way ... and we are about to get signs to help do that.
They are called "wayfinding" signs. In other words, they help you find your way around town to all the major attractions. We have so much here to offer visitors, and now they will more easily find their way!
Here's a personal story of how wayfinding signs help: Last month our family spent a few days in London. We arrived at Heathrow airport and followed the signs to the underground (the subway that transports people all over the city).
We were amazed at how quickly we learned our way around the city. Do you know how? Signs. The wayfinding signs in the underground are so easy to follow that we didn't even have to stop and study them, we just followed the arrows and effortlessly found our way.
Thanks to grants from the Indiana Office of Tourism Development and Harrison County Community Foundation, visitors will easily discover all that our town offers!
Watch for signs of welcome! They will be here before summer!
