    2021 Graduation Banner

    Due to ongoing pandemic restraints we are offering a way to honor your graduate with a banner to be hung on street poles. After the season is over, we will have any banner that has been delivered to us available for pick up so that you can keep! Banners are 30"x 72" 

    We keep banners up for the summer season, expected to be installed by end of May/early June.  

    You will be notified by email for pick up instructions at end of season.
