The City of Marion, Marion Chamber of Commerce and Uptown Marion Main Street District are pleased to announce that the military tribute banners, sponsored by local residents and businesses, are now on display along Marion’s Central Corridor (6th/7th Avenues from 7th/31st Streets). The banners are up in time for the July 4th holiday and will remain up through Veterans Day 2018.
Fifty-one veterans and military personnel with ties to Marion are honored in the inaugural year of the program.
“This is a great opportunity for our community to honor the veterans and active duty servicemen and women with a connection to Marion in a very personal way,” said Mayor Nicolas AbouAssaly. “This will be a visible, powerful reminder of the sacrifices they have made.”
Maps to help family members and visitors locate their banners can be found at the Marion Chamber of Commerce/Uptown offices, City Hall lobby, or downloaded here.
In addition to covering the cost of the banner, a portion of the sponsorship will be donated to local veteran affairs programs.
