Cameron County Little League received a face-lift on some of their signs from visiting Michigan artist, Carol Duncan Poore shown here with Glen Fiebig.
For those of you who haven’t noticed, baseball season is in full swing and Emporium’s fields are greening up and being played on nearly every night of the week. Our town also annually hosts the State Tournament for players from all over PA. With all of that use, some things are bound to get worn out. The signage at the fields was looking a bit tired so local resident Dana Crisp volunteered to remove and replace them with updated signs that looked and felt more welcoming to our visitors as well as our players and fans of the game.
Crisp removed all of the signs and then recruited her mom, Carol Duncan Poore to design, letter and produce them during her stay over the last few weeks. All of their time was donated and the Cameron County Little League (CCLL) purchased all materials locally. From the start, Crisp wanted the signs to have a theme that matched the existing sign on the memorial wall that was completed by local PA Wilds artisan, Nelson Haas back in the 1980’s. Poore utilized the ball player on Haas’ original sign and incorporated it into the new signs so every sign has the same “feel”. She and Crisp then put some fresh paint on Nelson’s sign and created a new parking area sign as well. The staff at CCLL is installing them and some of Poore’s new signs are already up!
