Hometown Heroes Banner Program

Mayor Neitzke-Troike and the Board of Trustees are proud to offer the Hometown Hero Banner program, honoring current and former community residents who have served or are currently serving our country in any military branch.
Banners will be displayed for two years starting in 2024 from approximately Memorial Day through Veterans Day. The banners will be displayed around Heritage Park Circle Drive.

The fee for sponsoring your Hometown Hero's banner is $175. This fee includes the cost of the banner and placement, removal, and storage over the two-year sponsorship period.
