Thirty-three banners and brackets have been installed on poles along Main Street in Guyandotte, which accent the historic value of the neighborhood.

The approximately $7,000 in funding for banners and brackets comes from Community Block Grant Development funds requested by the Guyandotte Historical and Improvement Association.

Donna Del Checcolo, president  of the association, said the banners along with park benches and trash receptacles  demonstrate how “embracing our community and working as a team move Guyandotte forward.”

District Nine councilman elect Rick Simmons added, “It’s great to see community organizations coming together to help move the community, district, and Huntington forward. This give me a lot of pride in one of the communities that I will be serving as a city councilman (beginning) Jan. 1, 2013.”

Current District Nine councilman Jim Insco assisted in securing the CDBG funds.
