SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A sign with the phrase “Peace on Earth” is hanging these days on the exterior wall of a Sioux Falls nightclub that is adjacent to the lot where a building collapsed earlier this month.

John Geiken is the general manager of PAve. He tells the Argus Leader ( ) that given the “tragic events” that occurred three weeks ago, the nightclub “just wanted to spread some love and hope” with the sign.

The building adjacent to the nightclub had housed a bar and was being remodeled into a drug store when it collapsed Dec. 2. Construction worker Ethan McMahon was killed during the incident and 22-year-old Emily Fodness was trapped under rubble for three hours before being rescued.

The newspaper reports the sign went up last week.
