"WELCOME TO RESSIE COUNTRY" Sign Project
It has been an uphill battle trying to get any of the cities around the Reservoir, or the state or federal wildlife & park management entities to recognize The R.E.S.S.I.E. Program. Our goal is to bring awareness to the public about Ressie. We also feel that Ressie could bring tourist dollars to the area. With that in mind Harv and I fabricated a few "WELCOME TO RESSIE COUNTRY" signs and went out a few nights ago and mounted them up guerilla style. We only made three, but if we get some positive feedback we hope to "legally" put more up throughout Hinds, Rankin and Madison counties. We figured it would be easier to ask forgiveness than permission since when we call for permission we usually get hung up on. Anyway out of the three the highway sign was the most tough to install. It took three people and a boom truck. The other two weren't that hard. When we put some more up "legally" or otherwise I'll post some more photos.
