Holtville Visions

Holtsville has been my town for over twenty seven years . I believe we all
can make a difference...just stop looking at it, and see it through. I believe there are a lot of residents who would like to but need to meet those who
actually get dirty and make it happen. Too many people think someone else should do it and it never materializes. I'm happy to say more and more residents are looking to make a difference today and see the change
tomorrow. Holtsville never had a " Welcome " sign from the L.I.E., it was
an image of litter and over grown grass. I took it on several years ago,
designing the sign, and adopting the entire " Plantation " as I now call it.
A handful of friends helped. One neighbor offered the much needed water
during draughts and I bought over 400 feet of garden hose to saturate
the grounds when needed. Tons of top soil, and mulch were added, and
to the worn out sand there. Then one small flat after another were added.
Unfortunately one evening someone took out all the plants that grew in
size. The area I mowed, picked up and despite the loss...continued forward slowly but surely to what you see today. Two major vehicle accidents there recently have put the project on hold, but once again, it will come
back to life. News 12 this winter referred to it as a "Beautiful Sign " when
they got stuck in the snow storm there......" Thank You !! "

After a forth accident at this corner, that the driver hit the South post of the sign and then taking off undetected except for all the vehicles pieces laying all about and color samples left behind, I completely refurbished the strength of the foundation and the frame.  Then repainted the lettering. It will soon be  back welcoming everyone to Holtsville "The Home of Groundhog Day"
