TRF Welcome Banner Sponsors
The Downtown Development Association, a subcommittee of the Thief River Falls Chamber of Commerce is seeking sponsors for the Thief River Falls Welcome Banners to go on the new light poles. The banners will incorporate our new community brand and the tagline "Where Two Rivers Meet. The banners will be placed on Main Street and 3rd. Since these are our most prominent streets, we designated these areas for the banners. Overall, our goal this summer is to have 24 poly canvas Welcome Banners place along the light poles on Main Street and 3rd Street. Any excess funds will be used to fund future banners ideas for the remaining light poles by incorporating cultural design concepts such as Rosemaling or historical City photos.
Our objective with the Welcome Banners is to utilize our community brand/tagline, add color to the central business district and make it more appealing to visitors and residents. We welcome ANY business, organization, and individual to support this community project.
