The Wenatchee Downtown Association in conjunction with Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is proud to offer this opportunity for you to honor a veteran or someone currently active in the military. A banner will be produced and hung in the downtown the entire month of November in conjunction with Veteran’s Day. We are seeking heroes with a local connection.
For $200.00 you may purchase a banner with your chosen military member on it. Your banner will be displayed on Wenatchee Avenue, Mission Avenue & Chelan Avenue. The banner will be displayed the month of November 2018 and November 2019. At the end of November 2019, there will be an option to keep the banner, or to pay an additional fee to have it re-hung the following year.

The remainder will be donated to the VFW Wenatchee Valley Post #3617 for they dedicated work for our Veterans and ones currently serving.
In addition, we are asking for information about your hero, to compile a “Behind the Banners” publication telling the story of our heroes as a memorable keepsake. Please send us a brief story on your hero including family information, birthday, death date (if applicable) and years served.
