The new Welcome to Cottonwood banners were mounted last Thursday, July 9 using the City Electric bucket truck. Thanks to City Electric owner Don Lustig and former owner Denis Duman. Duman and Shelli Schumacher volunteered the time to help mount the banners. The new banners were purchased by the Cottonwood Chamber of Commerce using money from the sale of the 150 year story books that was provided to both the Chamber and the Cottonwood Lions Club. Denis said it was definitely time to replace the old banners as some were in pretty bad shape. Photos by Terri Duman. Click on each  photo for a larger view.
