The village signs project of the Rotary Club of Saipan is now in progress, according to Community Services director Curtis Dancoe.
Dancoe reported during yesterday's membership meeting that RNV Construction, in charge of the sign installation, has already started putting up the posts for these village signs.
An employee of RNV Construction showed a sample of the sign, which features the Rotary International emblem with the sentences “Drive Carefully” and “Protect Our Children.” Each sign will be mounted on a 6-foot, 2-inch street post.
Dancoe said that a total of 10 signs will be erected throughout different villages on island as part of the Rotary's community service projects.
“We wanted to commence the project before the start of the school year but because of the materials and logistics involved, we couldn't come together right before back-to-school. Now it's in full swing,” he told Saipan Tribune.
“These signs are just a friendly reminder to motorists for them to drive safely,” added Dancoe.
He said the project is made possible through the contributions they received as well as fundraising efforts conducted by the Saipan Rotary.
“We'll be looking for more active, positive messages in the community that we can pass on to our youth,” Dancoe said.
The installation of the signs will be completed within the week, depending on the weather, said the RNV Construction staffer.
