DPW Superintendent Karen Galligan has a sense of humor. After the hullabaloo about her choice of color for Transfer Station stickers this year – pink for those of you who don’t know – she decided to have a little fun.
A few weeks ago several eagle-eyed My Southborough readers noticed an electronic sign at the Transfer Station described the stickers as “light red” instead of pink. A few weeks later, the sign changed to “dusty rose.” Today it reads “bubble gum.”
“It’s all tongue-and-cheek,” Galligan said.
Galligan told me she wants to change the color name one more time before the sign comes down later this month, but is struggling to think of a good description. So, let’s help her out. What do you think the color should be called? Salmon? Raspberry? Dusty mauve (thanks @Erin)? The only rule is you can’t use the word pink. Share your ideas in the comments, and maybe one of your suggestions will make it onto the sign.
