USAID 50th anniversary banner

Last September USAID staff members decided to put up a 50th anniversary banner outside the building.  We talked excitedly about size, shape, colors, style, and placement.  We were kids again, planning what we thought would be an easy deliverable to honor 50 years of service around the world.  Ten months later we watched excitedly, emotionally, and perhaps a little hysterically from the sidelines as USAID’s 50th anniversary banner went up right before our eyes.
