LANCASTER – Individuals and organizations can help celebrate local military heroes by sponsoring banners, which will be prominently featured along The BLVD in 2013.
The banners will display pictures of Antelope Valley residents who have served in a combat theater during a time of war including: World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War and the War on Terror.
For rules regarding the application process, visit the Hometown Heroes page on the city’s website at www.cityoflancasterca.org/hometownhero.
Lancaster launched The BLVD Community Program in November 2010, offering residents and business owners the opportunity to make a piece of the revitalized BLVD their very own. Seeing that these banners could be used for so much more than festive holiday décor, Mayor R. Rex Parris encouraged City Staff to develop a “Hometown Heroes” banner, to pay special tribute to local servicemen and women.
Sponsors can become a part of this year-long marketing opportunity for $100 a month. Sponsorships of four or more are discounted.
Applications for the program are due by Friday, January 11, 2013.
For more information, contact Nicole Nutt at 661-723-6173 or email@example.com.
Applications can also be picked up at City Hall, Parks Recreation & Arts Department or downloaded online at www.cityoflancasterca.org/hometownhero.
