Southampton Town Councilwoman Cyndi McNamara announced today the launch of the “Hometown Heroes Banner Program.” The initiative, spearheaded by Councilwoman McNamara and Westhampton VFW Post 5350, aims to recognize and honor our local military men and women by displaying personalized banners with their picture and military service information in Good Ground Park in Hampton Bays.
“I’m proud to partner with the Westhampton VFW Post 5350 on this program,” said Councilwoman McNamara, liaison to the Veterans Affairs Committee. “It’s important for us to recognize and remember the sacrifices made by those in our community who have served, and continue to serve our nation.”
Banner applications are now being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, with one banner per sponsor. To qualify, honorees must be a former or current resident of the Town of Southampton, and must be serving or have served in the United States Armed Forces. The cost of the eighteen by thirty-six-inch banner will be $200, with a portion of the proceeds to be administered by Westhampton VFW Post 5350 to benefit local veterans’ organizations or to assist families with a banner purchase.
The program will run from Memorial Day through Veterans Day. The first round of banners will be on display in Good Ground Park from Memorial Day to early August and the second round of banners will be on display from August through Veterans Day.
At the end of the program period, program sponsors will be able to pick up their banner at Southampton Town Hall in the Housing and Community Services Department. For more information about the “Hometown Heroes Banner Program” contact Jamie Bowden at firstname.lastname@example.org
