Local Wood Carver Donates Station Sign

0

Tim Turner donated a new sign to the St. Maries fire station last month.

Created by the local wood carver, the 12’ by 4’ sign was mounted adjacent to the building’s entrance mid-July.

Red and golden-yellow in color, the sign took several weeks to complete and five people to install on the side of the building.

Tim Turner donated his time and expertise to create a sign for the St. Maries fire station. It took five men, including Chief Larry Naccarato and Mr. Turner, to place the sign earlier this month.

Mr. Turner, a resident of the St. Maries River Road, has carved wooden signs since the early 1980s. He approached Chief Larry Naccarato at the fire station late last year and offered to create a sign for the station.

“He donated all his time and effort on that project,” Chief Naccarato said. “The department merely covered his materials, which costs us less than $100. But the hours of work put into the making of the sign, you can’t put a price on that.”

The station, located at the corner of Thirrd Street and Jefferson Avenue, was constructed in 2007.
