New Sign for Packard Music Hall

WARREN, Ohio – A new digital sign has been installed at Packard Music Hall, replacing the aging one that sat outside the venue for decades.

The sign cost about $70,000 was paid for and installed thanks to donations by two anonymous donors, as well as support from JAC Management Group, the Packard Band, the W.D. Foundation, Trumbull Town Hall, Community Skilled Healthcare Centre and the Patrons of Warren Civic Music.

“Once the elevator project was completed, we kept the momentum going by targeting the replacement of the sign, which was so badly needed,” said Dennis A. Rossi, president of the Packard Park Board of Trustees. “Without the teamwork of the organizations using the hall, this would have never been completed.” 

The sign includes the modern logos of both the venue and Packard Band middle, as well as an 8-by-10 millimeter LED main panel. Total costs were close to $70,000 including electrical upgrades, demolition of the old sign, installation and a service contract. About $57,000 has been raised so far and the W.D. Packard Foundation is still accepting donations through the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. 

“Projects like this show the strength of the entire Warren community and our team at JAC Management Group consider it a privilege to play a small part,” said Eric Ryan
