Military Tribute Banners
As you travel around the Delaware Avenue, Kenwood Avenue and Elsmere Avenue areas in Delmar you should be seeing Military Tribute Banners hanging from the utility poles. The banners are there to recognize and honor the former and current military members from the Town of Bethlehem area. Currently there are over 80 banners hung around the area. There are more in the production process that should be being hung in the near future.
If you are interested in sponsoring a banner for your family member you can start the process by one of two ways. Either contact Art Thornton at email@example.com or go to militarytributebanners.org click on “BANNER PROGRAMS” and locate “BETHLEHEM, NY”. (See the information card below.) The sponsor is responsible for providing the military member’s picture and various information about the person being honored.
The banners are a project of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3185 on Delaware Avenue here in Delmar.
