Hometown Heroes Banner Program
Do you know of an active duty or retired service man or woman? Muhlenberg Township currently has a Hometown Heroes Banner Program. This is a great way to honor and thank those who served and continue to serve our country. We are looking for interested parties to sponsor banners that will be placed on light poles within Jim Dietrich Park. The banners are 60” tall and 30” wide and will have a photo and details of your Hometown Hero such as where and when they served. Banners are made of durable weather-resistant vinyl which will last for many years. Banners have already been hung at Jim Dietrich Park, so act now to reserve a spot. Information can be found on our website at www.muhlenbergtwp.com, by calling the office at 610-929-4727, or by visiting the office at 210 George Street, Reading, PA 19605 between the hours of 8AM and 4:30PM Monday through Friday. We need at least 15 banners per set to maintain a banner cost of $200 which we currently have so the only wait time will be for the banners to be printed. You will have an opportunity to see a proof of your banner before it is printed. Contact the office at 610-929-4727 or stop in during business hours, Monday through Friday, 8AM to 4:30PM to obtain an application or download here:
