Greater Waterbury Area Alumnae Supports downtown Banner Project


Submitted by Evelyn Oliver Knight

The Greater Waterbury Area Alumnae Chapter purchased a banner to support the Downtown Pole Banner Sponsorship Program. The banners highlight organizations who serve the community and meet the needs of an ever changing city.

Since its inception, more than 65 pole banners have been sponsored. The colorful orange banners include images of downtown buildings emblazoned with the words: Downtown Waterbury “Live. Work. Play”. The name of the supporting organization is added to the bottom of the banner. This program originates out of Main Street Waterbury’s Promotion Committee, part of Main Street America’s four-

point approach to downtown revitalization. The charge of the Promotion Committee is to market downtown’s unique characteristics to shoppers, investors, new businesses, tourists, and others, while promoting retail events, special events and ongoing programs.  The banners will hang for two years with a renewal option for further support.

GWAAC serves the following areas: Greater Waterbury, Bristol, Litchfield County, Middlefield, Middletown, Naugatuck Valley, Portland, and Southington.
