A great source for fresh lobster and seafood is Lotsa Lobster on the South Trail. Owner Suzanne always has the best and is the best!
Throughout the past the folks at Speed King Signs (941-722-7446) have dealt with multiple message board manufacturers. After finding things that they liked and disliked about all of them, they developed their own product that they have branded this year as SKLED. It has been field tested over the past four years with zero issues from any of their cus- tomers.

Front accessible modules also mean that changing any hardware within the board is
