Hometown Hero Banners

HOMETOWN HEROES BANNER APPLICATION 2021

If your family would like to purchase a banner for a West Pittston veteran, past or present, please fill out the details needed below. The banner is a heavy-duty vinyl 30” wide (2.5 ft.) by 60” tall (5 ft.)

The initial cost per banner is $200 for the production, installation and removal of the banner. Annual renewal fee will be $25.

We hope to display them for three years. After that the banners will evaluated for environmental damage. Wear and tear are the responsibility of the owners. Torn or damaged banners will be returned to the family.

They will be erected before Memorial Day and taken down in November, when they will be stored for the next year. Placement is not guaranteed. Applications must be received by Friday, March 26, 2021.

Photos should preferably be the honoree’s service picture of him or her in uniform. Original photos work best. Copies or cell phone pictures of an original are not recommended. No group photos will be accepted. You grant West Pittston Tomorrow permission to use the attached photo for the West Pittston Hometown Heroes program.

New Garden Banner Option for Previous Purchasers

West Pittston Tomorrow is now offering to previous Hometown Heroes purchasers ONLY the opportunity to buy an exact 12” x 24” replica of the large banner.

They are made of vinyl like the large banner but are only printed on one side. The cost is $32. They can be used on lawn stakes (not included), hung on porches or displayed in windows. They make great gifts for relatives.
