The Royal Canadian Legion – Burlington Branch 60 is bringing back its Honour Our Veterans banner program for 2021.
In 2019, in the weeks leading up to Remembrance Day, the Legion placed colourful banners on lightposts lining the streets in downtown Burlington, around City Hall, that honoured local veterans and their families.
This year, the banners will once again be displayed along Brant Street and Lakeshore Road, 3-4 weeks prior to Remembrance Day (Nov. 11) and will remain up for a few days afterwards.
Each banner is 24 inch (61 cm) by 52 inch (132 cm) and there are 30 lightpost spots available.
For more details on the veteran banner program and how to obtain one, please visit http://burlingtonlegion.com/bboard.htm.
The deadline for the Legion to have the banners manufactured is the second week of September, so be sure to contact them before then.
The Royal Canadian Legion – Branch 60 is located at 828 Legion Rd. and can be reached by phone at 905-639-6400 (office)or905-639-6060(lounge), or by email at CanadianLegion60@bellnet.ca
