Reflective Blue Signs from VIFD

We sent in our $10 last year. Never got our sign. Then we moved and I forgot all about it. At Strawberry Fest, we stopped at the Fire Department booth and learned that we can still get out sign. Last year, when they were first overwhelmed with orders, some just never got processed. So you can call the Business Office up there 206-463-2405 and inquire about your never-arrived sign -- or order one for the first time. Be safe, Be seen -- have your location marked with one of the reflective blue and white signs today!!!!


Check out IsleWilde!!!!
