Dear Supporter:

The Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corp and The Rotary Club of New Bern have launched the MumFest’18 campaign.  We would like to have your participation.  You can reserve your banner for the MumFest’18 by completing the form on the back, enclosing a check for $185.00 made payable to ROTARY CLUB OF NEW BERN, and mailing it back to us at PO Box 818, New Bern, NC 28563-0818.  If possible please send by June 30, 2018. The deadline for submission of application and payment is July 15, 2018.

If you would like to submit payment through PayPal it is offered this year by accessing  Go to Support and Rotary Banner Payment for more information.

Why participate?

Your name will be printed on both sides of the banner along with the MumFest ’18 logo (example on application – follow this link for the Banner Application Form 2018 PDF(3)).  Banners will be hung on downtown New Bern lamp posts for several weeks prior to the MumFest, during the MumFest, and several weeks after the MumFest.  Your personalized banner will also be returned to you (see tentative schedule below). Having your name displayed beautifully for thousands to see gives you a valuable opportunity to show your support of community events and civic pride.
