Phillips Hometown Heroes
Supporting our local Military
THIS PROJECT WILL ALLOW THE PHILLIPS COMMUNITY TO SHOW OUR PRIDE AND APPRECIATION TO ALL OF THE LOCAL SERVICEMEN WHO HAVE SERVED IN THE ARMED FORCES.
Military Banners will be displayed on 18 of the light poles along Main Street. Each banner will be 24”x48” (2x4). Each banner will be two-sided with a photo of the veteran, name and branch of military. Banners will be displayed for one season from Memorial Day through Veterans Day.
Banner cost will be $100.00 for each 24”x48” and includes the hardware and hanging of banners by the City of Phillips. Each banner will also be featured on the Phillips Area Chamber of Commerce website under the Hometown Heroes tab with the option of including a statement of service provided by the application. Donation/Sponsorship may be available to families wishing to take part in the Hometown Banner Project but cannot afford to pay the cost/full cost of the banner.
Veteran Criteria: Any honorably discharged veteran or ones who gave their life serving in the armed services, including those currently on active duty in the armed services. They must live or have lived in the Phillips Area (54555).
