The Town of Riverhead Veterans Advisory Committee has partnered with the Riverhead Business Improvement District and Wedel Sign Company to honor past and present Veterans, Active-Duty, Reserve, and National Guard members to install tribute banners on Main Street lamp posts beginning April, 2021.
Each banner is individualized to honor a specific person with his or her name, branch of service and a photograph. Community members are encouraged to sponsor a veteran, living or deceased by submitting an application and image to the Veterans Advisory Committee. The cost to sponsor a banner is $225 for one year of seasonal display.
The 21”x30” banners will then hang from downtown lamp posts annually from April-June in celebration of Memorial Day, and September-November in observance of Veterans Day. The application will reopen annually, allowing new applicants the opportunity to sponsor their Veteran. Previous year’s banners may be rotated into display, depending on the number of new banners each year.
