CANTON, Mass. (August 12, 2016) – The town of Canton’s senior living facilities recently received new exterior signs, paid for by a $6,500 donation from Bank of Canton. The Canton Housing Authority installed the new signs earlier this month at Newell Hagan Court, Julius Rubin Court, and Hemenway School Apartments.

“We’re extremely pleased with the new signs,” said Mark Roy, executive director of the Canton Housing Authority. “We’ve received lots of positive comments from residents. Bank of Canton’s generous gift allowed us to replace not only the signs at Hagan Court and Rubin Court, which was our original plan, but also the sign at Hemenway School Apartments as well. We’re very grateful.”

In addition to the buildings’ names, all three signs feature Canton’s official town seal and gold leaf. The previous signs had prompted complaints by town residents due to their poor condition.

“The Canton Housing Authority does a lot of important work to help our local seniors,” said Bank of Canton President and CEO Stephen P. Costello, “and we’re proud to support this initiative. They’ve done a great job with these signs. Buildings are once again clearly marked for residents and their guests, and the top-notch quality and design of these signs really enhances the aesthetics of the area.”
