In 2011 the Bel Air Downtown Alliance introduced the Hometown Heroes Banner Program to honor men and women from the Harford County area who have served or are currently serving our country in a branch of the military. Each unique banner includes the soldier’s picture, branch of service and era of service. The banners are 24″ wide and 44″ tall and include sponsor’s name, prominently displayed at the bottom.

The Alliance is resurrecting the program for 2016 and is inviting interested parties to submit applications. Approved banners will be displayed on Main Street from May to July and again in November for Veterans Day.  The Bel Air Downtown Alliance cannot make any guarantees with respect to exact placement of the banners.  This will be determined by the town according to space availability. The Bel Air Downtown Alliance will make the banners available for pick up at the end of the 3 year program.  All banners not picked up within 30 days will be discarded.

The Hometown Heroes Banner Sponsorships are $250.00 each which includes the information about the soldier, the sponsor and the picture as described above. The sponsorship fee pays for the banner and administrative costs.
