Main Street Banners

RIA shall display banners over a two-year period commencing in the Fall of 2017. We cannot, however, guarantee a particular placement along Main Street. By paying to sponsor a banner, you agree that all materials used become the property of RIA. RIA takes no responsibility for spelling or other clerical errors that you may make in completing the order form.  Nor can RIA provide you with a proof or other facsimile of your banner prior to production. So it is very important that you complete the form with care. In the event that RIA is able to accommodate orders made after the established deadline, the duration of banner display shall not be extended and all banners are scheduled for replacement when the two-year period expires in the Fall of 2019.


As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, contributions to RIA are generally tax-deductible. However, the RIA does not provide tax advice on IRS rules pertaining to such donations. Donors with tax-related questions should consult their tax advisers.
