New town clock a beauty to behold

The donation of a beautiful town clock that will augment the ambiance of our historic Downtown, an officially designated Cultural & Entertainment District, came to fruition last week when the attractive clock was installed on East Main Street, adjacent to the Sanford Museum's Sanford Lane City Park.

Thanks to the Paul and Marilyn Cedar Family, the 12-foot tall, two-faced clock with its stunning antique appearance, now graces our Downtown.

Paul and Marilyn Cedar have traveled in communities in other states that have similar clocks, and they have come to really appreciate their stylish appearance and impact on visitors. The Cedars simply wanted to bring a clock like that to their home town.

"With its older look, we thought it would be a nice addition to our downtown and fit right in," said Marilyn.

Last week, Champion Electric and City employees installed the attractive clock that fully embraces the historic, home-town look the renovated Downtown is now known for.
