Hometown Hero Banner Program

The Hometown Hero Banner Program is a tribute to military service members (veteran, active, reserve, and guard) and first responders (past and present) with connections to Northumberland County. Banners are displayed on streetlights in downtown Sunbury to recognize the men and women who serve or have served our country and community. Each banner is unique and honors a specific hero including their picture, branch of service, era of service and hometown. The banners are on display from May to November.

A sponsor (usually family of the hometown hero) purchases the banner and provides the photo and service details. The purchase price covers the making of the banner and hanging the banner for the first year. There is a fee for rehanging the banner each following year. The banner is the property of the sponsor. If the sponsor chooses not to rehang the banner, he or she may take possession of it after it is taken down. Otherwise, SRI will clean and store the banner to be rehung the following year.

Paperwork for ordering and rehanging banners will be available every year starting in February. This program is non-political and non-partisan. For more information on how to honor a hometown hero with a banner, please contact us at (570)286-7768 or email [email protected].
