A 'banner' moment in Fishtown

Fishtown Ac­tion un­veils the first of a com­ing 125 ban­ners that will be dis­played throughout the neigh­bor­hood.

After many months of plan­ning and design, Pro­ject or­gan­izer Kathy Rhoads un­veiled a new his­tor­ic ban­ner at Gir­ard and Frank­ford av­en­ues.

Un­veiled on Sat­urday, March 24, the ban­ner is just one of 125 ban­ners that the civic or­gan­iz­a­tion Fishtown Ac­tion plans to in­stall throughout the neigh­bor­hood.

Each ban­ner will be dif­fer­ent, and will in­clude an im­age. The design team has fo­cused on three top­ics for these im­ages: his­tory, art and the com­munity.

Rhoads said the pro­ject is bank­rolled through $47,000 in fund­ing from the Penn Treaty Spe­cial Ser­vices Dis­trict.
