The Dallas Lions Club started its Hometown Hero Banner Project in 2011 as a one-year project. The goal was to honor local veterans, both past and present, for their service to our country.
The project was so well received, the club has continued it every since. The cutoff date for the 2014 proejct is March 31. All former banners will be on display with the new 2014 banners.
Frontier Communications supplies the manpower to secure and remove the banners to the poles. Without their support, this endeavor would not have been possible. The Lions Club anticipates that, with the 2014 sponsors, there will be over 100 banners throughout the streets of Dallas.
The banners will be displayed from Memorial Day through Veterans Day. At the conclusion of this year’s project, arrangements will be made to distribute the banners to their sponsors or family members.
Sponsorship forms are available at Dallas Borough Office, Back Mountain Memorial Library, Dallas American Legion Post #672 and NAPA Auto Parts, Dallas. For any additional information, contact project chairman Don Berlew at 570-675-4360 or 570-760-6147 or contact any member of the Dallas Lions Club.
