The committee for the Hometown Heroes banner program in Old Forge reports that more than 125 banners have been ordered so far. The first three rounds have been hung and additional applications are being processed.
Sponsors included Arcaro and Genell Restaurant, Burger King, DeFazio Amusement Co., George and Debbie Dunbar, Kearney Funeral Home, Mariotti Lumber Co., MacDonald’s and Mischello Trucking. The assistance of the borough Department of Public Works and borough manager Mary Lynn Bartoletti were also acknowledged.
Friday, July 13, will be the last day for submission of applications. The applications must be at the borough building by that date or they cannot be processed in the 2018 group.
“Thank you for your support and positive comments,” Mayor Bob Legg said. “We are proud to honor our veterans from all branches of service.”
