Pictures of the erecting of the sign. It is on Highway 28 just south of Cold Lake South. It was a joint venture between the Masons, Legion and Lions Club. The Lions Club sign is as yet not finished. Each sign is 5' x 10' and is 6' from ground level making the overall sign 15' x 10'. It is definitely visible and readable as you drive by. 

Pictured is Rt. Ex. Comp. G. Fulton, M. Ex. Comp. J. Carr and Comp. R. Bacon.

Missing from the picture is Comp. Lyle Edmunds.
