Throughout 2015, Conyngham Borough in cooperation with the Conyngham Borough Historical Society, Conyngham Valley Civic Organization (CVCO), the Valley Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), and the Conyngham Borough Downtown Business Association will be hosting a Hometown Hero Banner Program.
We are seeking your help in sponsoring a Hometown Hero Banner.
Each individual banner will be unique and honor a specific soldier including their picture, branch of service, era of service, and hometown. There is space for dozens of banners on street lights throughout the Borough. The program is non-political and non-partisan. It is purely a living memorial to those soldiers from Conyngham Borough and surrounding communities who served our country.
Please join us in celebrating the Veterans of the Conyngham Valley.
