Hometown Heroes Banner Program
Banners honoring Clinton’s veterans and active duty military personnel have been receiving rave reviews from residents and visitors to the city.
Due to the popularity and with sixteen (16) spots available for additional banners, the city of Clinton is making spots available along the Clinton Parkway for more families to enjoy the banner program entitled “Honoring Our Heroes”.
Created for the community to recognize and honor all Clinton active duty personnel and veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces - Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, National Guard, and Reserve units - with courage and compassion, the remaining sixteen (16) banner locations are available on a first come, first served basis.
The patriotic-design banners are heavy vinyl, 24” wide x 54” long, printed on both sides, and will display the veterans’ photograph in uniform. The banners will include full name, branch of the military, and the era, or the years of service. The banners will be displayed on the light poles that line the Clinton Parkway from Springridge Road at Highway 80 to Northside Drive. There are 16 remaining locations for veteran banners, so first-come basis will be observed by all interested participants. The banners are hung twice each year from Memorial Day to Independence Day and for the month after Veterans Day.
Each participant will be required to: (1) complete a banner order form, (2) email a high-resolution quality headshot photograph of the serviceman or veteran in uniform to firstname.lastname@example.org, and (3) make payment of $200.00 for each banner, by cash or check payable to: City of Clinton. The banner order form can be downloaded at www.clintonms.org/veteranstributebanner, or can be picked up at the Clinton Visitor Center located at 1300 Pinehaven Road.
Each participant should turn in his banner order form in person to the Clinton Visitor Center, along with payment by cash or check payable to: City of Clinton and email a high-resolution photo to email@example.com. For questions please contact Marsha Barham by calling 601-924-2221 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to have the banners available for the Fall presentation, the deadline for submission of orders and forms is August 27, 2018.
