Boothbay Region Veterans Banner Program update

Sat, 02/24/2024 - 8:45am

    The Boothbay Region Veterans Banner Program was launched in November 2023, and started with 73 photographic banners displayed to honor veterans in Edgecomb, Boothbay, East Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. The banners were taken down for the winter, and when they are placed back up in May, there will be over 250 representing our community’s veterans.

    The project’s committee continues to accept banner applications and have set a deadline of March 15 for the second round of orders in order to have them completed to be hung the beginning of May. The committee will continue to take applications beyond the 15th but those banners will be hung at a later date to be determined.

    If you or your family are interested in participating, reach out to the committee liaison in your town and ask for an application. To complete the process, simply fill out the one-page form and submit it with a photo of the veteran in uniform along with a $125 check made out to American Legion Post 36 (write Veterans Banner Project in the memo line).
