MUNFORD -- The town of Munford installed its first welcome sign Saturday, Feb. 4, at the northern portion of the town limits on Highway 21.

Mayor JoAnn Fambrough noted Councilman Tim Lipham spearheaded the campaign, which will feature two welcome signs placed at the north and south ends of town. The signs were constructed by Scott Sirman of Southern Custom Gifts in Anniston and cost approximately $4,000.

The mayor said future plans include the installment of the additional welcome sign at the south end of the town and solar lighting to be placed around both signs.
