After two months of online polling and one member meeting the new header was selected by almost a unanimous vote (of those who voted).

The new image is at the top of the page now. Thank you to E. Rushton Gilbert for creating the image that reflects the post’s vision, mission, and members.

Vote on the New Website Header

Part of the process to bring the website up to date is making it reflect the members and purpose of the Post. I made an attempt to create a header (the pictures at the top of the website). But not being a graphic designer the result was adequate, but not what I envisioned.

So I asked for some help on a forum that I frequent and found E. Rushton Gilbert (his friends call him Eddie, though…). Eddie is a veteran and a police officer so the cause is close to his heart. He is a graphic designer by hobby/trade/education and generously agreed to create a custom header for the Post website. He volunteered to help and produced these magnificent choices without any compensation. Read more about him at the end of the page.

Please take a look at the three options and use the poll at the bottom of the page to vote on your favorite.

The poll is open until March 14th. The winner will be announced via email and promptly and proudly displayed on the Post’s website.
