West Whiteland Township and the Downingtown VFW Post 845 are proud to announce the Hometown Heroes Banner Program. The program serves as a tribute to recognize service men and women from the West Whiteland Township area who have served or are serving our country in a branch of the military.
The banners are 18” wide by 36” tall. Each individual banner will honor a specific West Whiteland Township area service man or woman and will include his or her picture, branch of service and era of service. Sponsoring for the Hometown Heroes Banners may be by the service member’s family, friends, or a business. Sponsors will be named on the banners.
Banners will be displayed on the existing light posts on Commerce Drive in Exton from Memorial Day until Veterans Day, after which time the banner will be returned to the sponsor upon retirement of the banner. Please note: There is no guarantee as to the life of the banner, but all retired banners will be returned to the sponsor.
The cost of $200 for sponsorship includes the banner, hanging fixtures, and shipping.
Applications are available at on our website and www.vfw845.org
Applications will be accepted and reviewed for approval once the following items are received – (1) a fully completed application, (2) a photo of the service member and (3) a check or money order payable to “Downingtown VFW Post 845”.
