Sanger unveils new military banner display

Sanger has unveiled a display of 16 military banners along Academy Avenue to recognize, honor and pay tribute to local military personnel.

The banners are located one block north and south of 7th Street. They are full color, double-sided and measure 30 inches by 94 inches. They will remain on display through mid-November.

The inaugural display serves as a kick-off promotion and advertisement of the 2016 Military Banner program.

The city was joined by the Sanger Veterans Advisory Committee and Sanger Veteran Organizations in establishing the Sanger Military Banner Program.

The public is encouraged to attend a brief ceremonial dedication on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at Sanger City Hall, 1700 7th St.

Applications for the 2016 program will be accepted through April 1.
