Peter Stuart Swart received a trailer from the Help of Ojai in January after losing his Upper Ojai rental to the Thomas Fire. Swart, a local artist, refurbished the trailer and used the scraps, including the trailer's former flooring and countertops, to create a new sign for Help's Community Assistance Program (CAP) office on Fox Street. “I just thought they needed a sign, something fun,” Swart said. He delivered the thank you gift to the CAP office June 8. Swart isn't new to sign-making — he created original signs for the Blue Iguana Inn and Emerald Iguana Inn, he said.
