Northumberland County Hometown Heroes

The Hometown Hero Banner Program is a tribute to veterans, those currently serving, and first responders with connections to Northumberland County. Banners are displayed on streetlights in downtown Sunbury and along Front Street as living memorials to the men and women from our community who serve/have served our country.

Each banner is unique and honors a specific hero including their picture, branch of service, era of service and hometown. This program is non-political and non-partisan.

If you are a Hometown Hero, or would like to honor a Hometown Hero as part of this program, please complete an application and mail it to the Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. office (address listed on form).

The deadline for 2020 submissions is CLOSED. We will reopen this program again at the end of 2020.

Banners displayed in 2019 have been removed.  If you would like to rehang your banner in 2020 please print the application and mail it, along with you payment, to the Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. office.  We will clean and store your banner until it is rehung in Spring 2020.

If you prefer to pick your banner up, please contact the office to make arrangements.


*Banners will hang from May until November. Upon removal they will be cleaned and presented to the sponsor; or, they may be picked up at the SRI office. Unclaimed banners will become property of SRI and may be discarded after a reasonable time period has elapsed.

Please contact Sunbury’s Revitalization, Inc. at (570) 286-7768 or by e-mail ( if you have any questions about this program.
