On March 29, Weldon Tiedt gathered together a hard working crew of friends to begin the installation of the new signs that he and Robert Morgan had designed and built. These handsome signs were designed to stand tall so that the word “Ridgecrest” was not obscured by the plantings in the esplanade and were built strong so they would last a long time.
They used the design that had been used before but added the trees. Robert did the routing of the letters, logo and trees while Weldon painted and bolted the signs together.
The first sign was installed at the end of the Hammerly esplanade at Wirt and the second at Hammerly and Bingle. Here you see the entire crew of hard workers – Michael Goff, Kevin Holland, Hani Al-Twaijri, David Reynolds, Weldon Tiedt and Robert Morgan.
On April 19th the crew assembled again to mount the last two signs to complete the project. Two of the signs are on Hammerly at the crossroads of Wirt and Bingle. The last two are on Bingle at the crossroads of Hammerly and Longpoint.

The Bingle signs
As the photos show all four signs stand tall and are topped with brass caps to make a handsome presentation for the Ridgecrest Civic Club. Weldon, Robert and the entire group are to be congratulated for all their hard work. The results look good and make the esplanades much more attractive.
