Memorial Banners

By | News, Uncategorized

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #7 and the Village of McAdam are partnering to commemorate and honour Veterans and their sacrifices during past and current conflicts in the world. This is a unique tribute to our veterans for Remembrance day. This project will consist of mounting memorial banners of these individuals on the power poles on the main street through the village. This is not limited to veterans who have passed on but also those who are still living.

DETAILS
Each banner is made of vinyl and is 2 feet wide and 4 feet long. They are double sided and a photo must be provided to be included on the banner. The brackets will be manufactured in McAdam at Granite Industries while the banners are produced in Saint John at Signs Plus. . The banner information will be limited to 3 lines and the information will be condensed. I.e. The Smith Family instead of mon and Dad, brother John, sister Jean. The more information on one line, the smaller the text will be and it may be difficult to read once they are mounted on the poles.

The cost of the banner and hardware is $300. If you wish to order a banner or would like more information please contact Andy Royer at 366-5596 or by email at: logio53@hotmail.com
Orders must be into Saint John by 31 July

.

Thank you for your support
