The Hometown Hero Banner Program is a living tribute created for the community to recognize and honor veterans who are serving or have served our country in the United States Armed Forces. We are excited to bring this worthwhile program to Bethel Township as part of a community outreach initiative from Siloam United Methodist Church and the Bethel Township Supervisors.
To qualify, a veteran, living or deceased, must have had a connection to Bethel Township (lives or lived in the township or is related to someone who lives in the township) at some point in their life; also, those honored on war memorials within the community andveterans recommended by organized veteran’s groups, such as, Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Marine Corps League and Vietnam Veterans of America.
The banner will be 30” x 60”, made of heavy vinyl, printed the same on both sides and will display the service person’s photograph, include their full name, branch of the military and the era of service. The banners will be displayed on Foulk and Naaman’s Creek Roads. We are hoping to have these banners proudly displayed by Memorial Day, 2021!
