Romeoville is offering a new way to remember, honor, or thank a veteran in your life. The Romeoville Veteran & Service Member Banner Program is a $45, 24” x 62” double-sided vinyl banner that will be displayed on the light poles along Grand Avenue in front of Village Hall from May - November. Orders must be received and paid for in person at Village Hall by January 1st of each year. Only 40 banners will be hung per year and, at the end of November, the banner will be given to the individuals who purchased them. Additional banners for home use can be purchased for $45 each. There is a one pole per household, per year limit. First time applicants will get priority over returning applicants.
“Our veterans are very important to us and this is a unique way to share those special people with the entire community,” explained Mayor John Noak.
To qualify for the program, the veteran must be a current resident of Romeoville or, if deceased, had previously lived in Romeoville. Part of the proceeds of this program will go towards the Veterans Commission scholarship fund as well as paying for veterans’ assistance programs.
