Thanks for preserving history

Have you noticed the old Coca-Cola advertisement on the old “Corner Drug” has been repainted? Stop, look and thank a few local citizens who made all the difference in preserving this local treasure on the old drug store located at the corner of Barnard and Elm streets.

Dorothy Leach, Kelly Hoodenpyle and most of all, Charles and Irma Sanderson, owners of the 1880s historic building, deserve a big “thank you.” From what I understand Ms. Leach mentioned the sign’s need for new paint to Kelly Hoodenpyle. Kelly coordinated efforts between a sign painter needing work and the building owners. Job done by the day’s end thanks to the financial generosity of Charles and Irma Sanderson.
