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, which have been broken down into two periods: installation and maintenance.
During the installation period, or year 1, banners will be registered, designed, printed, and hung. Banners may be able to be located to specific spots on a first come, first served basis. The cost of a banner throughout this period will be $250, of which, 2% will be donated to the Veterans & Community Housing Coalition.
During the maintenance period, or years 2-4, banners must be renewed in order to maintain their spot on the lampposts. The renewal process will be done in a similar fashion as the registration process and can be accessed both online and via mail. The renewal fee will be $160, with $10 being donated to the Veterans & Community Housing Coalition.
Revenue generated from this program will be recirculated into programming for Downtown Gloversville and its development.
