AMERICAN LEGION AND VFW CO-SPONSOR "BANNERS ON BROADWAY"
As one walks or drives down Broadway and a couple other streets in downtown Hopewell, one may observe something new added to the streetscape - banners which honor the military service of some of Hopewell's "Hometown Heroes". Initiated by members of Post 146 and approved by the Hopewell City Council this past April, the Hometown Heroes-Veteran Recognition Program's goals are to raise community awareness of and about the contributions made by veterans and help increase pride in our community, state and nation; but at its heart is the recognition of the service given by U.S. Military Veterans, both in war and peacetime.
Post 146 is proud of the role its members played in bring this program to the city and in making it a reality. The banners are scheduled to be displayed from now until Veterans' Day, November 11th - a fitting tribute to those who served the Nation and a reminder that this year marks the 100th anniversary of World War I.
Take a moment to walk the streets, read the names of those who served in war and peace - and made Hopewell proud.
