Kip’s Neon Sign Restoration

This gofundme effort is to acquire, restore, and permanently install the former Kip’s Inn neon star at a location to be determined in Yankton, SD.

Consider your financial support a gift to the Yankton community. I will in no way profit from this campaign. I will publicly report all expenses for this project.

Expenses for this project include $500 to acquire the neon star from the current owner (done).
$50 to transport the star to Love Signs in Norfolk, NE for restoration (done).
$2,580 to restore the star (strip, repaint, new neon glass, new electronics).
$1,700 to install 25ft pole anchored in concrete and mount star at location TBD.

It is not known where the neon star will end up. The P&D ran an article on the project - https://www.yankton.net/community/article_7dc5a49a-c13b-11e8-89f6-8b3c095e729b.html     

Would like to see it placed in a high traffic area where the greatest number of people could enjoy it.

Input welcome. Please share your thoughts here or on the “You Know You Are From Yankton, SD” FB page.

Hoping current and former Yanktonites will catch the vision.

Sincerely,
