About 60 people gathered at South Whidbey State Park Tuesday, Aug. 25, for a picnic and unveiling of a restored park entrance sign.

First hung in the early 1960s, it was taken down at an unknown date and used for flooring in a firewood shed. At some point, it was found, removed and then stored for many years before being recently rediscovered.

The restoration was done by Mike Holmberg, a Lynnwood artist.
