A good sign

Lawrence uses Rising Sun to help enrich the community and raise money for local charities.

August 2, 2012


The sign hanging at Rising Sun Maintenance’s entrance, located on prime property on a thoroughfare most everyone drives coming and going, is a real eye-catcher in the community. The green, wooden post-sign with company colors-green and yellow-is surrounded by landscape and lit at night.

It’s not the Rising Sun sign that’s especially unique-rather, the message board that hangs below it. Anyone can donate $5 to Rising Sun’s charity (currently the Community Sharing fund through a local church) and have their say on the message board-birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions. You name it.

The sign has been up for decades, Lawrence says. The charity changes from time to time. This is just one way that Rising Sun gives back to its community. “We do a lot of community pro bono work, as well,” Lawrence says.

Lawrence, who serves on the local planning commission, volunteers Rising Sun to maintain the village green at the town historical society, for example. “We give back to our community as much as we can.”
