SHENANDOAH - If you have a friend, family member, or loved one from the Shenandoah or Ashland areas, you can honor their service with a Hometown Hero banner in their respective community.
In Shenandoah, the Anthony P. Damato American Legion Post 792 is hosting the project, and invites all local veterans and their families to participate. All veterans, living or deceased, and active service members can be honored with a banner, which will be 24" Wide and 48" High, consisting of their picture, the branch they served in, the time they served, the conflict they were in, and the banner sponsor's name. The cost for a banner is $100. Applications can be picked up at the Downtown Shenandoah, Inc office at 116 North Main Street in Shenandoah.
In Ashland, the borough of Ashland, in conjunction with the Ashland VFW, Ashland Downtown, Ashland American Legion, Ashland Chamber of Commerce, and Ashland Rotary, is hosting the project. The banners will be placed along Centre Street and Hoffman Boulevard in downtown Ashland. Each banner will be unique and honor a specific soldier including their picture, branch of service and era of service. The banners will be 30" Wide and 60" High, and will be displayed from Memorial Day to Veteran's Day in 2017 and 2018. The banners will also acknowledge area first responders. The cost is $200, and applications can be picked up at these locations
