Although the neon signs have had over 50 years of weathering, there is a possibility that they will soon be part of a neon sign display that will celebrate Sunnyside’s history.
The neon signs that may be displayed include the Lindstrand Jewelers sign, Safari Restaurant and Amundson Hardware.
According to the dailysunnews.com article, “Lindstrand Jewelers was a place where we repaired watches and jewelry, as well selling china dinnerware and silverware,” recalled Lindstrand yesterday, adding it was nice to see his old sign again.
There is still debate on where to put the neon ally. Parties who are interested in being part of the restoration project can contact Sue Jetter at 837-4345.
