People who drive by it every day still notice it. And those for away see it and love it. That building houses the Main Tavern. The address is 154 Main Street.

Yesterday the other side of that building had a sign erected. I happened to be driving by.  Here’s the sign being installed on the McGuire Building.

The sign was designed by artist Charlie Hewitt. "Hopeful" merchandise will also be available for purchase.

When one hears the word hopeful or hope, The Shawshank Redemption comes to mind. Andy Dufresne said it so well

 Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And a good thing never dies.

This sign is going to look so good on that wall. May it bring inspiration to us all.  And to the United Way of Eastern Maine and to the artist Charlie Hewitt, Thank you for your optimistic word.
