A new “Veterans Banner Program” has been launched by the City of Moose Jaw’s Heritage Advisory Committee.  

The program has been put in place to honour local veterans, both past and present, who have fought for our country and our freedoms. The program is an initiative that is supported by the City of Moose Jaw, the Royal Canadian Legion, ANAVETS and the Saskatchewan Dragoons.  

“The Heritage Advisory Committee feels it's always important to recognize and celebrate the people who fought for our country and for freedom in general, and this is an excellent way to showcase those heroes,” said Heritage Advisory Committee chair John Bye.  

The project will see a maximum of 40 banners hanging on streetlight poles along Main Street and throughout the downtown core during the month of November.  

The banners will include the name and picture of the veteran.  

Because there are a limited number of banners, applications are being taken to ensure all program guidelines are met. The deadline for applications is April 6.  

Individuals, family members, organizations or businesses that are successful in their application will be able to purchase a banner for $330. The cost includes the production of the banner, shipping and the annual installation and removal of the banner. However, the applicant will be the owner of the banner.  

“They will be displayed for the month of November for three years consecutively and then the banners will be given to the applicant,” Bye said.
