The 'Welcome to Historic Alton' sign on the McAdams Highway - more commonly known as the Great River Road - has been cleaned up, thanks to the work of a group of Alton-Godfrey Rotary Club members.  The area along the river side of the highway had fallen into disrepair recently, and that concerned Rotary member Mitch Cannell.

Cannell comments

He says the club has been instrumental in several projects around the Alton-Godfrey area, including the Steamboat Mural at Broadway and Landmarks in Alton, the Rotary Centennial Fountain at State House Circle, the statues at Lincoln-Douglas Square, the statue of Robert Wadlow and the Wadlow chair on the SIU Dental school campus, a Habitat for Humanity House, as well as numerous fountains around the community.
