(KEARNY, NJ) – Mayor Alberto G. Santos announced today that the design for the Town Hall 150th Anniversary banners has been selected. Daniel Veloso, a third year Kearny High School Graphic Arts student and Graphic Arts instructor Joseph Domalewski collaborated on nine comprehensive banner designs for the Town’s 150th Anniversary Committee to choose from. Mayor Santos explained, “All of the designs were creative and well-designed. The final selection’s simpler layout and Trajan font appealed to most committee members.”
The banners feature the official Town Seal in gold and are designed to showcase Kearny colors, red with a black border along the sides. They will be prominently draped on the façade of Kearny Town Hall, in time for the kick-off celebration of the Town’s sesquicentennial anniversary. This is the first time the Town will display banners on the façade of the Kearny Town Hall. The cost of the banners is funded by a donation from River Terminal Development. The banner unveil ceremony will be held on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. It will provide an opportunity to call attention to the historic, milestone sesquicentennial anniversary and the series of commemorative events planned to mark the anniversary.
The banners will remain in place throughout the year in commemoration of the anniversary. For more details on anniversary events and updated schedules, visit www.Kearny150.org, call (201) 955-7979 or “Like” Kearny150 on Facebook.
