(Kearny, NJ) – On Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Mayor Alberto G. Santos held the 150th Anniversary Banners presentation at the Kearny Town Hall. The presentation of the anniversary banners provided the opportunity to call attention to the historic, milestone sesquicentennial anniversary and the series of commemorative events planned to mark the anniversary.
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 throughout 2017 in commemoration of the anniversary. The cost of the banners was funded by a donation from River Terminal Development.
