Village initiating veterans street banner program – Cutoff date Oct. 1

banners showing military veterans
Examples of area veterans banners

The Village of Stillwater is working with an area vendor to create and display street banners honoring past and present village and town military men and women who have served our country.

The cutoff date to purchase a banner is Oct. 1, 2021. The program may be reinitiated in the spring of 2022.

Similar to other municipalities that have undertaken this program like the Cities of Troy and Amsterdam, the banners are purchased by military families and feature the veteran’s portrait and military information. The banners are hung on lamp posts along village streets for a period of three years to honor that service member. The cost to make each banner is $200.

Interest families are asked to download, print, complete and submit the application below, a photo of the veteran to be honored along with a check for $200 and made out to the Village of Stillwater. Mail to:

P.O. Box 507
Village of Stillwater, NY 12170

Please see application information for more details. For more information please contact Trustee Dorothy DeMarco at 518-258-8527, leave a message and she will return your call.
