Montrose Center

The folks at the Montrose Center were so impressed with the Banners that they
requested a set of them to display in the hallway of the first floor, in a smaller format.
This was done in December 2014, and they have expressed a desire to add
more hangings as the number of banners increase.

The event above was on a Thursday, and we were pleased that the church requested that
the banners stay through the Sunday services, getting much additional exposure. It took
two people 3 1/2 hours to mount the exhibit, but the take-down (below) went much faster.
