Active Military Banner Program Will Honor Those Now Serving

The City of San Marino will honor community members who are actively serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or attending a military academy by displaying a personalized street banner in recognition of their duties.

The banners will be on display in the center of town from early September through mid-November and will then be presented to each honoree or family member at a special Thanksgiving Breakfast in November.

Banners will be offered at no cost to the serviceperson or family member and the city hopes to fund the project entirely through donations.

In order to qualify, honorees must be on active duty with any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces including the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or National Guard or be attending a military service academy.

The honoree must be a current or former San Marino resident, or live in the San Marino Unified School District boundary, or be a high school graduate of either San Marino High School or Southwestern Academy.

For an application or to make a donation to the Military Banner Program, please call the San Marino Recreation Dept. at (626) 403-2200.
