At long last, the “Welcome to Glenelm” signs are up throughout the neighbourhood! These beautiful signs were designed by Glenelm graphic designer Glen Sapach and the project was led by Joanne Cerilli. The signs are a gorgeous, lasting contribution to our beloved neighbourhood, and the perfect illustration of what a community can achieve when everyone works together.
GeNA sends its sincere thanks and congratulations to Glen, Joanne, and all the volunteers and residents who dedicated their time or made donations in support of this citizen-driven project. Special thanks also to Speedpro Winnipeg North, A Division of Airmaster Signs for going above and beyond during the installation of the signs.
