I'd like to thank you for pointing out the misspelled "are" for "our" on our sign. This is the same message we have been putting up for a few years now to attract attention. When someone reads it and recognizes the misspelling it draws their attention. We've had people mention it before so we know it's working. This is what advertising is all about, getting the word out.

Anyone that has read these forums knows that the Volunteer Fire Service could use all of the help that the community can offer. We appreciate any level of support that our community can give us.

Thanks again for the free advertising, and anyone that would like more information about joining up can contact us on the first monday of the month at the Fire Station unless it happens to be a holiday, in which case the meeting will be on tuesday.

Lets try and use some logic here. They say they mis-spell to attract attention. But for someone to notice the error, that would mean the sign had their attention to begin with. so is it worth the price making the dept look like a joke?

I can understand that you want people to see your sign however I think you could draw attention in other forms reather than having it look like you have an illiterate placing your signage up. How bout a nicer sign ya know something more modern. This sign looks like a billboard pointing to a truck stop rather than a professional fire organization.
