Royal Canadian Legion Burlington Branch 60 Accepting Applications for 2022 Honour Our Veterans Banner Program

STOCK_Burlington Veteran Banner Program_01

The Royal Canadian Legion – Burlington Branch 60 is now accepting applications for its 2022 Honour Our Veterans banner program.

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 — and have continued the tradition annually since.

The banners are displayed for one, 3-week period, once a year for two years along Brant Street and Lakeshore Road, leading up to Remembrance Day (Nov. 11).

Each banner is 24 inch (61 cm) by 52 inch (132 cm).

To participate in the Honour Our Veterans Banner Program, please complete and submit an application form (you can download a copy of the form here: 2022 Honour Our Veterans BANNER PROGRAM).

The Legion notes that the safe storage of the banners is the responsibility of the applicant and that you will be notified of the dates for display and removal. There are a limited number of spots available — the deadline for submissions is Sept. 9, 2022.

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

Your email address will not be published.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
