Honour our Veterans Banner Program
The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 613 is initiating an “Honour our Veterans Banner Program” in partnership with the Town of Pelham. This program will be an ongoing legacy program that will pay tribute to all Canadian and Allied veterans and active Service Members. Legion membership by the honouree or the sponsor is not a requirement for participation in the program.
Honour our Veterans banners are proposed to be displayed on the existing lamp posts along Pelham Street, in downtown Fonthill, from Mid-October to Mid-November each year, as a means to pay tribute to our local Veterans, deceased Veterans and active Service Members. Through the displaying of the banners, we hope to engage the community in honouring and remembering local Veterans through an initiative that will ensure continued recognition and respect throughout future generations.
Each banner will be in honour of a specific Veteran with a connection to Pelham. It would include their name, era served, branch of service, and the name of the sponsor.
The Honour our Veterans Banner Program will be funded through the sponsorship of individual banners. The cost of sponsorship for a banner is $175.00.
Application forms are available for pick up at RCL Branch 613 and the Town of Pelham.
The deadline for applications is July 1st, 2019
