Our Lethbridge veterans are being honoured with a special banner project around the city.
The Lethbridge Salute Our Veterans Banner project sold a total of 80 banners last year as they were set up around different spots in our city. This year 50 more were sold compared to the first year of the campaign.
“We are now starting to put up in time for the 1st of October a number of banners throughout the community expanding on the locations from last year, including on the west side down by the hockey rink, and on the north side, Winston Churchill School. We have a number of banners on Exhibition Way, which ties into the significant history of the exhibition and the military since the first war,” says Glenn Miller, a committee member for the project.
Officials say the deadline for banner submissions was earlier this summer. If you would still like to sponsor a banner for 2024, details can be found on https://lethbridgeveteransbanners.ca/
