The city has quite the big birthday this year. Would you like your name on one of the historic birthday banners?
On March 2, South Pasadena will celebrate its quasquicentennial, so the Chamber of Commerce plans to adorn 62 light poles with banners featuring historic photographs from the archives. Families or individuals, organizations or businesses who live in, or serve South Pasadena may sponsor a banner for the 125th anniversary. The sponsorship for each banner is $500.
The sponsor's name and a commemorative logo will be featured on both sides of the banner from February 1 to Oct. 31, 2013. Once the banner is removed, you may collect and keep it, according to Scott Feldmann, president of the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce.
Do you have any great ideas for how the city should celebrate? The Chamber would love to hear your ideas!
To sponsor a banner, fill in the application here and mail it to the Chamber with a check made payable to the South Pasadena Chamber of Commerce before January 22nd, 2013. You may also stop in at the
Chamber at 1121 Mission Street to pay with cash or a credit card.
