People of Penn Yan were shocked July 9 to see a crew demolishing the Henderson’s Drug Store sign, a piece of vintage neon that had been a Main Street fixture for 60 years. Village Code Enforcement Officer Bruce Lyon says he knew nothing about owner Larry Jepsen’s plan and that Jepsen had no permit to alter the building’s façade as required in the village’s historic preservation district.
