Love is in the Air Banner Dedications

Love is in the Air! 

To celebrate the Season of Love, HDP offers personalized banners that hang throughout Downtown from February to March. Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit HDP to support our projects and programs. Supporters can purchase a message to be displayed on one or both sides of the banner, and can even donate more to keep their banner as a keepsake forever. This is a great opportunity to surprise a loved one with a special message, express your gratitude for someone in the community, or declare your love for Downtown Hillsboro! 

The Love is in the Air banner design was hand painted by Hillsboro artist and friend of HDP, Elizabeth Higgins. Find more of her work here
