We have been working hard lately to revamp and update the CAHS office. One of our many projects was to redo our wooden CAHS sign. The first picture is before and the second picture is after. We are so thankful to have awesome artists on board here at the CAHS office. Thank you Erin Dunagan and Carla Hemmer for all your hard work. The new sign looks amazing!!

The New CAHS Sign

You might remember that we used to have a sign on top of our building. This sign was provided by a generous donation. Unfortunately the wind had other ideas, and we had to remove it before it fell down and came through our front window.
It has taken us quite some time to come up with enough donations to have the sign remounted.
Thanks to the hard work of G-Dubs Construction, and Sign City we finally have a new outdoor sign.
