The Dallas Lions, in partnership with Frontier Communications, is sponsoring the Hometown Hero Project for 2012. The project will be a tribute to men and women from the Back Mountain area who have served, or are serving, our country in any branch of the military. The Home Town Hero Project is a street pole banner program. The banners are 30 inches wide and 60 inches high. Each banner is unique and honors a specific honoree. The banner would include a picture of the service man or woman in uniform, branch of service, era of service and rank. Photos can be in black and white or in color. This yearâ??s banners will be placed mostly in Dallas Borough. The number of banners placed will depend on the availability of pole locations. Placement of the banners will be done at random. The banners should be placed on Memorial Day and displayed through Veterans Day. At the conclusion of the program the banners will be given to family members. Sponsorship for each banner is $200. Any contributions would be appreciated to help with expenses. All proceeds remaining after expenses will be donated to the 1st Lieutenant Michael J. Cleary Foundation. Sponsorship forms will be available at the following Dallas locations, Dallas Borough Office, Frontier Communications Office, Dallas American Legion Post 672, Back Mountain Memorial Library and NAPA Auto Parts.
