It's Not Too Late to Participate in the Guilderland Hometown Heroes Program!

(Note: Opening Ceremony Date Changed from May 5th to April 28th)

There is still time to participate in the Guilderland Hometown Heroes Banner Program!  The program will honor residents of Guilderland, Altamont, Berne, Knox and Westerlo who are veterans or are serving in the United States Armed Forces.  Each banner will honor a specific service person by including their name, branch of service and photo. 

An opening ceremony has tentatively been scheduled for April 28, 2018 at Tawasentha Park and the banners will be displayed from spring through fall of 2018 on light poles at the park and at the Guilderland Public Library.  When the display is completed, the banners will be retired and presented to families and sponsors at a closing reception in November.

Individuals, families, businesses or organizations may sponsor a banner at a cost of $150 per banner.  The Town of Guilderland will purchase brackets for 28 banners in 2018.
