Supervisor Bill Reilich is inviting Greece Town residents to submit original renderings for the official logo to be used as we prepare to celebrate the Town’s 200th Birthday.
March 22, 2022 marks the two-hundred-year anniversary of the Town of Greece! Originally called Northampton, the town was named after the country of Greece, which was fighting a war of independence from Turkish rule. Planning for this historic bicentennial celebration has already begun and we look forward to celebrating Greece’s rich history as one of the largest municipalities in New York State.
To officially kick things off, we wanted to open up this opportunity to all Greece residents and businesses who would like to submit a logo idea which, if selected as the finalist, will be used on all official literature, documentation and social media relating to the Town’s plan to celebrate this historic event.
“We are anxious to engage our community in this historic milestone” said Supervisor Reilich. “We have so many events that will delight our community as we gather together to celebrate what makes our town so unique.”
In the upcoming months we will begin to organize activities and events all in honor of the Town Of Greece 200th birthday celebration. There will be many opportunities for members of the community to participate in the planning and development of what we foresee will be nearly a year-long celebration which we will kick off in 2022.
“Greece residents wishing to submit their logo idea can email their design to Greece2022@greeceny.gov. Entries will be accepted until March 25th, at which time a selection will be made and the logo revealed to the community. I encourage you all to get your creative juices flowing and participate in this unique opportunity” said Supervisor Reilich.
Keep tuned to Bill Reilich Greece Town Supervisor Facebook page and the Town website for future announcements as we work to celebrate 200 years together.
