Welcome to Thornhill sign now up

Sign creation follows desire for Thornhill to be recognized as own entity

SEVERAL months of hard work has now borne fruit with the installation of a ‘Welcome to Thornhill’ sign on Hwy16 at the eastern approach to the community.

It’s a creation of local wood artist JJ Jung.

The sign project was organized by Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine Thornhill director Ted Ramsey to replace one at the same location which said ‘Welcome to Terrace’.

This new one is intended to reflect more the community of Thornhill and its depiction of a horse logger harkens back to the earlier settlement days.

It’s also meant to draw attention to an annual heavy horse pull at the nearby Thornhill Community Grounds and to the Skeena Valley Fall Fair.

Two more signs are also being planned, one near the bridges crossing the Skeena River on the western approach to Thornhill and one near the airport. Each will have a different theme.

The cost of the first sign was covered by donations and in-kind material and labour.
