PORT HENRY Moriah businesses and civic groups still have a chance to get in on the town bicentennial celebration. The town bicentennial committee has extended the deadline for purchasing commemorative banners to Oct. 3.
The banners will be placed on utility poles in the town this fall and remain in place throughout 2008 as Moriah marks its 200th anniversary.
So far people seem very pleased with the banners and have been very supportive, said Catherine Sprague, who is heading up the banner project.
The banners are 36 x 72, have a logo featuring mines, the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain, and read Town of Moriah, 1808-2008, Celebrating 200 years.
The name of the sponsoring business or civic group will appear at the bottom of each banner.
Theyre really nice, Sprague said.
Each banner costs $135. They can be purchased by contacting Catherine Sprague at 546-7935 or by mailing a check payable to Town of Moriah Historical Society/Bicentennial Celebration, to the Town of Moriah Historical Society, 38 Park Place., Port Henry, NY 12974.
