City of Henderson Accepting Applications Military Recognition Banner Program

By Debra Haskell, Public Relations Coordinator, City of Henderson

The City of Henderson continues the tradition of honoring its heroes with banners bearing the name, rank and image of an active military serviceperson with ties to the community.

Applications are being accepted for the City’s Military Recognition Banner Program, which honors the brave men and women currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. The street banners will be displayed starting around Veterans Day. The application deadline is October 8, 2018.

Henderson residents, businesses and organizations may nominate an honoree and sponsor a street banner for $150 (includes banner printing and installation). The honoree must be a Henderson resident or the immediate family member of a Henderson resident and must be an active duty member in good standing. There is a limit of one banner per serviceperson.

The street banners will be installed around the Veterans Day holiday and displayed for a year. Once the banners are removed following the display period, the serviceperson will be honored at a ceremony hosted by the City of Henderson.

Nomination forms are available by emailing Marketing@cityofhenderson.com

or visiting www.cityofhenderson.com

An official color military photo of the honoree in their formal military dress uniform is required in a 5” x 7” or larger original photograph or a high-resolution (300 dpi) JPEG file format on disc/USB drive or emailed with the completed nomination form to Marketing@cityofhenderson.com
