New Sign

This is the beautiful painting on our new library sign. (You can see the sign at the top right of our blog.)

This kind of painting is called rosemaling and literally means "decorative painting," in Norwegian. Since Colfax is located in an historically Norwegian community, we thought it fitting that our library sign displayed a beautiful symbol of the Norwegian culture.

The sign is also mostly red,the color of our school sports team. The Colfax community is a big supporter of our local school sports. Go Vikings!!!

We are still waiting for our sign to go up yet, hopefully it will be soon. Maybe the warmer weather will inspire our work crew.
