The city of Santa Clarita’s Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program is accepting orders for banners to be installed for Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Veteran’s Day.
In order to have a banner installed in honor of Memorial Day, banners for actively-serving military members from Santa Clarita Valley must be ordered by Monday, May 9, 2016.
The Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program offers local friends and families of actively-serving military an opportunity to have one streetlight pole banner hung along a major thoroughfare in one of Santa Clarita’s communities including: Canyon Country, Valencia, Saugus and Newhall. Each banner features the military member’s photograph, name, rank and branch of the military they serve.
To qualify, banner honorees must be active duty military personnel in the United States Armed Forces; they must be a current Santa Clarita resident, or an immediate family member of a current Santa Clarita resident and must have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley at some point.
“I’m very excited about this program which will honor our currently-serving military. The community has really come together for this program, providing donations to help underwrite the cost of the banners for those in need. This is a great way to pay homage to those who are serving our country,” said Mayor Bob Kellar.
As an ongoing program, Hometown Heroes Military banner orders will be accepted at any time. Banners can be purchased by individuals, family members or organizations. Order forms can be found at santa-clarita.com.
