Oxford Hometown Hero Banner Program


The Hometown Heroes Program was developed to give individuals an opportunity to honor a Veteran.   The Veteran is honored by a sponsored banner, which will be publicly displayed in the Borough of Oxford.


Application Requirements:

In order to be considered for a banner, the honoree must meet the following requirements:

Banner Design, Time Frame & Location:

  • The banners are double sided, vinyl material and include the service person’s name, branch of service, era of service and photography.
