Volunteerism was sign of the times for KPC-food bank project

Posted: Monday, May 15, 2006

Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus Service-Learning Team and administration would like to thank all students, faculty, businesses and members of the community who helped make the new sign at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank possible. The establishment of the marquee was a truly a community, cooperative effort.

The following individuals and companies contributed to the project:

Doug Field, of Kenai Neon Sign Company, provided ongoing consultation regarding construction and installation of the sign and his father, Bill Field, donated time helping install the marquee.

Dayne Clark, KRC business professor and Food Bank board member, purchased plywood, framing lumber and screws for the sign.

“Guff” Sherman, owner of Sherman Signs, took the letters designed by the design team and scaled them to the size of the sign boards. He hosted the Two-Dimensional Design class at his place of business for the vinyl letter cutting and collaborated with the students to apply the letters to the sign boards. This provided the design team a glimpse into the world of professional sign-making.

James “Fuzzy” Cox, KRC student and field superintendent at Peak Construction, facilitated sign post and steel donation by Peak.

Brent Sutton, of Redman Steel, arranged drill pipe donation by Redman.

Jeff Schmelzenbach, owner and operator of Glass Works, donated materials and time to repair fiberglass on the reader board.

Bill “Dancing Bear” Miller, KRC student, helped Schoonmaker wrap aluminum sheathing around the edges of the sign board unit.

Dave Stang, maintenance staff at KRC, provided tools and welded the electric box on the superstructure of the sign.

Rich Gill, of Rich’s Electric, consulted on supplies and configuration requirements for installing lighting on the marquee.

Andrew Hanrahan, KRC alumnus, welded the superstructure to the supporting pipe assemblage for reader board and sign boards.

Pat Daly, friend of Schoonmaker, stopped by to lend a hand with the sign installation.

Brown’s Electric and Alaska Steel provided discounts on welding and electrical materials.

KPC community relations coordinator
