Acme Sign Renovation Update

We are pleased to share an update of the vintage Acme 10 sign renovation project! We have officially begun restoring the sign – which of course means tearing it completely apart. With that though comes some exciting news. It was originally thought that the 50’s style fin was only installed on the bottom of the sign. However, Ellet Sign’s master fabricator has discovered through exploration that the 50’s style fin was also installed on the top of the sign and further completes the original look of the sign. Photos from the sign demolition process can be seen below. We are now moving into a phase of matching up replacement components to not only restore the sign, but also make it more energy efficient! Stay tuned for more to come.

Congratulations to the 2012 Acme Scholarship Winners!

Acme Fresh Market Scholarship

Comments from Deborah Owens, Ph.D., lead selection committee member.
“As a judge for the last 15 years for the Acme Scholarship Awards I have seen first-hand the outstanding dedication of these young people. Each of the 64 applicants, without exception, had excellent grades, volunteered in their communities, and were active in sports and other activities such as church, choir and band. College today is an expensive endeavor, and the generosity of Acme to these young people has allowed 24 area young people to help reach their career goals, whether it be as a pharmacist, a teacher, an accountant or an occupational therapist, among the many worthwhile professions these students are pursuing. It is also interesting how many of the applicants credit their employment at Acme as a critical contributor to their success. Many volunteered that their work experience taught them so much about life, people and helped them choose a future career in pharmacy, sales or business for instance.

I am so pleased that Acme has chosen to invest in our local community in numerous ways, including their generosity in awarding $72,000 in scholarship money this year alone.
