'Welcome to Bonita' Sign Not So Welcoming

NBC 7

The "Welcome to Bonita" sign was toppled by a falling Eucalyptus tree in early November.

The sign at the doorstep of the South County community is typically covered in holiday lights this time of year.

The tree remnants have been cleared, but the destroyed sign remains with community members trying to replace it, as first reported by Bruce Kauffman with the San Diego Reader.

Leading the charge to replace the sign

This is not the first time the sign has had to be replaced. About five years ago, the wood rotted, and the side poles had to be redone.

Bellamy estimates it will cost about $2,000 to replace the sign.

For more information on how to help, contact the Bonita Kiwanis Club.
