For the Record Spring banners decorate the uptown Wadesboro area. The banners will be changed five times per year each season and for Christmas.

As part of Anson County Tourism Development Authority’s commitment to promote tourism and encourage economic development, the organization is rolling out a street banner program to enhance its streetscapes and promote the community.

The program is part of the countywide wayfinding and branding project. Banners in the uptown core of Wadesboro — which are seasonal for spring, summer, fall, Christmas and winter — will be rotated five times per year by the town of Wadesboro.

These banners are funded by local businesses or individuals as part of public-private partnership efforts for tourism and economic development in the county. The themes and design are the responsibility of the TDA.

Several organizations and individuals have already sponsored banners, including:

• Anson County Chamber of Commerce

• Anson County Economic Development Corporation

• Carl Gibson, Lacy’s

• Carolina Title

• Carolinas Healthcare System-Anson

• Collini & Johnson, PC

• H.W. Little & Company Hardware

• Hair Designs by Jeff Cappell

• Anne Leary, in memory of Stephen Leary

• James R. Harrington Surveying

• Jeff Boothby, Woodsmen Forestry

• Ken Tyson’s New York Life Office

• Lewis B. Evans, Consulting

• Oliver’s Hometown Restaurant & Bar

• Parson’s Drugs

• Richard Allen, API Security

• Shelby and Tim Emrich

• The Dream Inn

• Turner & Tyson, PLLC.
