SNELLVILLE – Already known for honoring veterans through the Veterans Memorial, the city is unveiling yet another way to pay tribute to those who served our country.
The Snellville American Hero Military Banner Program is a tribute designed to recognize and honor veterans who are currently serving or who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
The display of the American Hero Military Banners will contribute to the community’s quality of life which lends a special character to the city. All proceeds will benefit the Snellville Veterans’ Memorial.
The banners, approximately 18 inches wide and 38 inches long, will be displayed on the lamp posts in the Snellville Towne Center area along Oak Road, Clower Street and Wisteria Drive. The cost to memorialize or honor a veteran is $200 for a banner located on the Towne Green or in front of the Veterans Memorial and $150 for all other lamp posts in the Towne Center area.
Two different banners will be displayed on each lamp post, one on each side. Location of the banner is at the discretion of Snellville Tourism and Trade, however, requests for up to two family members to be displayed on the same pole will be accommodated on a first come first serve basis.
A portrait-style photo scan of the service person in dress uniform is required and must be scanned at a minimum size of 5-by-7 inches and at a minimum dpi of 150. Please label the scan with the veteran’s name and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for Banners to be displayed for Memorial Day is April 15. Deadline for Banners to be displayed for Veterans’ Day is Aug. 20.
The banners will be displayed approximately 30 days prior to the Memorial Day holiday and again approximately 30 days prior to the Veterans Day holiday on Nov. 11.
