Romeoville is offering a new way to remember, honor or thank a veteran.
The Romeoville Veteran & Service Member Banner is a 24-by-62-inch double-sided vinyl banner that will be displayed on the light poles along Grand Avenue in front of Village Hall from May to November.
Orders must be received and paid for in person at Village Hall by Jan. 1 of each year. Each banner costs $45. Only 40 banners will be hung per year and, at the end of November, each banner will be given to the person who purchased it.
Additional banners for home use can be purchased for $45 each. There is a limit of one pole per household, per year. First-time applicants will get priority over returning applicants.
To qualify for the program, the veteran must be a current resident of Romeoville or, if deceased, have previously lived in Romeoville.
Part of the proceeds of this program will go towards the Veterans Commission scholarship fund as well as paying for veterans’ assistance programs.
