Upper Merion Township Hometown Heroes Banner Program proudly recognizes veteran service members who have been honorably discharged, both living and deceased. Each banner honors a specific Upper Merion service member whether a current or past resident of the Township.
The banner features the service member’s name, rank, branch of armed service, era of service (WWII, Korea, Vietnam, etc.), service dates, prestigious medals, photo, and sponsored by section to include the sponsor name. The banner will measure 24” x 48”, printed on both sides on heavy duty vinyl.
Banners will be displayed on Township-owned lamp poles at the following Township properties: The Township Building, The Community Center/Township Pool Complex, Heuser Park Sports Complex. Sponsors can select their location preference. (Note: Specific poles on the selected location cannot be requested.) Banners will be displayed from May through November for a two-year period. Afterward, banners are given to the sponsors as a keepsake. If the banner is not collected by a sponsor, it will become the property of the Township. Banner displays are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and will be available until all spots are filled. Learn more.
