Van Buren Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with the City of Van Buren, proudly presents the Hometown Heroes Banner Program.
Each individual banner will be unique and honor a specific “Hometown Hero” who has served, or is currently serving, our country through military service. The red, white and blue banners feature the name of the service person, their branch of service and a photo of the veteran or service member. The banner will be the same design on both sides. The service person being honored does not have to be a current or former resident of Van Buren or Crawford County.
Each Hometown Heroes Banner will be on display in the Downtown Van Buren area (Main Street, East Main.) The display of the banners will allow as many veterans as possible to be honored.
The cost of each banner is $160. Banners will be displayed from Memorial Day through Veterans Day for two years, with storage in the winter months. Banners have the option for renewal after year two. The number of banners installed is limited. Purchase will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
Application deadline is March 31st for banners to be hung in 2023.
Submittal of an application for a banner and payment are required in order to secure acceptance into the program. Click here or on the button above for full application and information.
