The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 62 is starting a Veteran Banner Program this year.
Families of Veterans will be able to purchase a banner in memory/honour of their Veteran.
The banners are 24 inches wide by 54 inches tall and will be displayed from City of Sarnia lamppost along Christina Street between George Street and Wellington Street. Each banner will have a picture of the Veteran along with his name, branch of service, theatre of service and sponsor’s name. The Canadian Fag and Union Jack are displayed across the top of the banner with the Legion crest and Poppy along the bottom.
The cost for the banner is $150.00 and it will be displayed for three years at which time the banner will be given to the sponsor. Ten dollars from each sale will be donated to assist homeless Veterans.
Application forms are available at the Legion. There are a limited number spaces to display the banners.
