CUSTOM YARD SIGNS
Logan's Run and Walk Yard Signs are perfect to show your support for autism awareness. Customized signs help provide information about autism, honor those with autism, say "thank you" to those who have helped your family and loved ones, or provide autism information. The signs will initially be displayed at the Logan's Run and Walk event. After the event, the signs may be picked up in the Carousel Pavilion on City Island. All signs are made of corrugated plastic - great indoors and outdoors. The surface is not affected by water, and cleans easily. Very durable outside! All signs come with a pair of EZ wires for easy displaying. For more information, click "Order a Custom Sign" on the left. If you ordered a sign in previous years and did not take it with you, it will be displayed again this year. ASGHA thanks Zachary Pauley and his family for handling the sign management and storage each year!
