DAR taking orders for veterans banner program

The Fort Vallonia Chapter of Daughters of the American Revolution is giving the public an opportunity to honor a past or present member of the U.S. Armed Services with a commemorative banner.

Banners are anticipated to fly one season from Armed Forces Day (May 20) through Veterans Day (Nov. 11) on poles in Seymour.

A banner may be purchased for $120, and it will be yours to keep after the season is over. DAR officials will contact you when it’s ready for pickup.

There will be 50 banners available on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to order is Dec. 15.

For information or to purchase a banner, contact Ruth Ann Rebber at 812-569-1659 or email [email protected].

The DAR chapter also have talked to officials in Brownstown and Crothersville about the veterans banners program. If those town councils approve to participate, information will be released.
