Glenbank Cemetery gets a new

New cemetery sign made locally

Driving down Alexander Road in Glenbank, you may have noticed a bright new addition to the entrance of the cemetery.

Driving down Alexander Road in Glenbank, you may have noticed a bright new addition to the entrance of the cemetery.  The village has replaced the sign and managed to keep the business local.

Heavy duty mechanic Coleman Macintosh does a lot more than fix big rigs at Nakusp Mobile Mechanics Ltd, his machine shop on the north end of town. In addition to many types of mechanical work, he also manufactures a variety of items in metal.

He was approached by the village to create a sign, leaving the design up to him. The white lettering is easily visible from the road and it is flanked by finely hewn red roses.

“I rolled the tubing from square shaped into the arch. The letters were cut in-house on my CNC cutting table and then welded on individually. The flowers are made out of hand heat-forged steel,” Macintosh stated.
