ALEDO -- A new roof turned into something more at Aledo's American Legion Post 121 recently.
Riddell Roofing of Aledo replaced the legion's roof in late December, and threw in a bonus -- spelling out the organization's name on the roof.
"We purchased a roof and they donated the signage," he said. "It was very nice of them. Any time someone does something for the veterans it's a real nice deal," said post adjutant Jay Doherty.
The process uses heated welded lettering as part of the Durolast roofing material. The white surface has bonded grey lettering applied telling the world the building is American Legion Post 121.
"It will be seen on Google Earth once they retake the satellite picture," Mr. Riddell said.
"We couldn't do all the stuff that we do here without the support of people like you," Commander George Howard said during the presentation of a plaque to Riddell Roofing.
