Village Seal

The Village of Buchanan is holding a contest to redesign our Village seal, which appears on the Village letterhead and many other documents.

Designs must be submitted by October 15, 2021. Questions? Contact Trustee Nick Zachary and Hendrick Hudson School District art teacher Jessica Nash by email.
