Honour a Veteran with a Banner

New for 2019, Chestermere’s Streetscape Committee has introduced the “Honour our Veterans Banner Program” to recognize those who have served or are currently serving in the Canadian, Allied or Commonwealth Forces.  Banners will be hung at Anniversary Park leading up to and for our Remembrance Day Service. The application deadline is August 1, 2019.  This will be an ongoing program and any late applications will be held for next year’s printing.
