To help promote and celebrate this year's 125th Anniversary of the establishment of Mt. Gretna's Campmeeting and the Pennsylvania Chautauqua in Mt. Gretna, the Mt. Gretna Area Historical Society is producing and offering for sale commemorative banners celebrating this important milestone event in Mt. Gretna's history. These multi-colored banners, which will measure approximately 29 inches wide by about 47 inches high, will be made of durable 18 oz. exterior banner vinyl and will display on both sides the 125th Anniversary logo that has been developed for the Historical Society. The commemorative banners are being produced for the Historical Society by Conestoga dpi in Manheim.
The banners are appropriate for displaying on porches, railings, banner poles and other areas and are intended to allow cottage, home and business owners in Mt. Gretna and surrounding communities to help celebrate the Campmeeting's and Chautauqua's founding 125 years ago.
The cost for the banners is $100 each, which includes sales tax. The first deadline for ordering banners is Friday, March 31. Banner orders received after that date will not be included in the order that will be placed with the banner manufacturer. The Historical Society will not be able to guarantee the ordering of additional banners after the placement of the initial order and the ordering of additional banners will be dependent on the receipt of sufficient subsequent banner orders to maintain the $100 purchase price.
The 125th Anniversary banners are expected to be available this spring. Banner purchasers will notified when the banners are available.
