Clintonville Industrial Park sign repainted
By Bert Lehman
Emily Krueger was recently recognized for spending more than 20 hours repainting the main sign by the Clintonville Industrial Park.
Krueger, who attends Clintonville High School, said the sign is located close to her dad’s business in the industrial park, and city officials asked her dad if he knew anyone who was willing the paint the sign.
“They wanted to have it all cleaned up so it looks nice because it was looking really old,” Krueger said.
Her father asked her if she wanted to paint it.
“I was happy to do it,” Krueger said.
She added, “I’m pretty artistic. I enjoy painting, plus it got me out of the house to do something. I figured I’d give to the community.”
Before she could begin painting, she had to scrub the sign to prepare it for painting.
For her efforts, Krueger received a proclamation certificate from Clintonville Mayor Judy Magee during Clintonville Volunteer Week, June 21-27.
Krueger also received a plaque from Magee, thanking her for the more than 20 hours of volunteer community service repainting the industrial park sign.
Krueger said her dad has told her about people who stop at his business and tell him that the sign looks a lot better.
“It’s a good feeling,” Krueger said. “I enjoyed doing it. It was fun just to be able to get out there and paint.”
