OVERVIEW: Hero banners honor the community's first responders, veterans, currently serving military, and those killed in the line of duty or in action, and those missing in action.
QUANTITY & DURATION: Our goal is to display a maximum of ~20 banners in the community. Depending on demand, space available, and resources to install and remove, individual banners may only be displayed for one season and/or could remain displayed year-round. Upon banner retirement, efforts will be made to transfer the banner to the requester.
COST: Initially, cost per banner/hardware is $155, paid for by the requester. This cost may fluctuate as actual costs are realized. Donations received for this program may decrease or potentially eliminate costs to requesters.
Note: The program is managed and operated solely by the Springfield American Legion Post 227.
