After months of planning, research, and time well spent, the new billboard in south Ava on Highway 5 has been installed and extends a warm greeting of “Welcome to Ava” to passersby. The new sign not only welcomes people to our wonderful town, it also showcases some of its businesses, as Chamber members had the opportunity to purchase a full color ad and lease a 12-month premium ad space on the new sign that sits on the east side of the south Hwy. 5 and west Hwy. 76 intersection. So, the next time you’re out-and-about, take a short drive south of town, and view the new “Welcome to Ava” sign!
