The Town of Guilderland and the Guilderland Chamber of Commerce are partnering to initiate the popular Hometown Heroes Banner Program that has gained local and national attention. This is our 2nd year! The program proudly recognizes active duty and veteran service members, both living and deceased. Each banner will honor a specific current or former Guilderland, Berne, Knox or Westerlo service person and will include his or her name, branch of service, and photo. Banners will be placed at Tawasentha Park, the Guilderland Public Library and the Guilderland Town Hall. The Town of Guilderland will place and maintain the banners while they are on display. There will be an opening ceremony at Town Hall in the spring. The banners will be on display from spring through fall and at the conclusion of the 2019 program, the banners will be removed and presented to the family or sponsor at a closing reception in November.
