Hi Tracy,

Yes maybe we should design the banner in such a way as to send a message about who we are and our mission and leave a blank space to overlay a sign with the dates of a particular event. Not suggesting a lot of copy but rather as few words as necessary to get the main message across to passersby.

Agreed, perhaps our banner will help with this?

Thanks for doing the leg work on this, Jim.  I would only suggest switching the first few lines to read FREE EVENT (first), JOIN US (second), and the date third.

I like that suggestion!
You'll become a better person if you surround yourself with the quality of people that model the virtues you seek for yourself. But first take a deep look inside yourself and fix the only sure thing you have control over - you.

Copy for Digital Sign at Lutie School for ONE Congress

NOTE: There can be a max of 12 characters per line including spaces. The message can spill over to additional pages which then rotate at a pre-determined time lapse. Typically, people will not see the entire message in one drive by, but locals will glean the entire message after a few passes. Folks from outside the area who catch a bit of the sign that sparks their interest will often pull over and stop to read the entire message.
Here is a first rough draft of suggested copy for the sign, respecting the 12 characters per line limitation. I realize that having 8 panels rotate is not ideal in terms of readability, the trade- off is a much more limited message.
JOIN US
FREE EVENT
SAT. 4/2  8-5
Prosperity
Through
Local Food
And Energy
Independence
Another option is to place a homemade banner under the digital sign which reads:         Prosperity through Local Food and Energy Independence. This reduces the number of panels rotating to 3, and would be my recommendation.
I will have the person at the school who manages the sign put the final copy up in its entirety and see if it makes sense to have 8 rotating panels.
Your suggestions, as always, welcomed and invited.
Jim
