The Gloversville Hometown Heroes Banner Program is debuting in May, 2021. Members of the community may honor their loved hero by purchasing a personalized banner to be hung on decorative lampposts in Downtown Gloversville. The program seeks to honor Gloversville's own heroes, who dedicated their lives to fight for the freedoms we are able to enjoy today.
With the attractive banners hung throughout the Downtown corridor, sponsors have not only commemorated their loved heroes, but also have contributed to the beautification of their own community.
This union of beautification and veteran appreciation will serve as a shining example of the community's collective effort to advance the development of our city.
The Gloversville Hometown Heroes project will take advantage of the existing 79 decorative lamp posts throughout Downtown Gloversville. Each post has space for double-side banners, introducing a total of 158 opportunities to hang banners.
The banners, dedicated to veterans native to Gloversville, will feature the veteran’s name, year(s) of service, military branch, photo, earned medals, and sponsor names.
Banners will be priced based on associated fees and costs, amounting to $100.
The new subscription fee of $100 simply funds the costs of the banner and equipment. In the event of unexpected loss or damage, the sponsor will be notified and given the option to rehang the banner at the sponsor’s expense. Replacement needs vary based on environmental and geographic factors, however, banners are expected to last roughly three years. The team at FCCRG and the City of Gloversville will conduct annual inspections on the banners to assess replacement needs. In the event of needed replacement, our team will contact the sponsor to review options.
Once a banner is approved for printing, any changes to the veteran’s picture or information will require payment for a new banner unless an error is made by the printer.
