Have you noticed the improved appearance at the eastern entrance to Marlinton?
The Forest Service and Miss Peggy Smith joined to make the entrance to the Cemetery road more attractive by moving the fence and making more room for a new Forest sign.
The Bank of Marlinton now has shrubbery and a ground cover of periwinkle planted. Jack Bowen, helped by Albert Kelley, made the planting last weekend.
The First National Bank has added some shrubbery and the J & P. Store has been painted.
Civic beauty is everyone’s duty.
