Inscription.  

In recognition of loyal and unselfish service to the community of Andrews over a period of 47 years.

This building will henceforth be known as the C.E. Carruth Bi-Centennial Building

To that end, this building represents the devotion, dedication and willingness of a true Andrews Volunteer.
