The Veteran’s Day Banner Program, a Grayling Main Street committee, is proud to offer a new opportunity, to honor your favorite Veteran or Active Duty Service Person. Each year the committee will coordinate the display of over 80 Veteran’s Day Banners along Michigan Ave, starting in Downtown Grayling and continuing across town to the Grayling Elementary School. The banners will be displayed for approximately six weeks, beginning the last week of September, with removal being the week of Veteran’s Day, November 11th.
The money collected from this program will cover the cost of implementation, and the profits will benefit three groups in the Grayling community:
10% - Grayling Main Street
45% - Crawford County Historical Society and Museum
45% - Naval Sea Cadets Corp youth program
Special notes about 2019:
In 2019 GMSt will offer two sponsorship opportunities to those wishing to honor their loved one with a banner. Forty (40) 1-year displays for $100 each, and forty (40) 2-year displays for $200 each, will be available in 2019. The inaugural year (2019) will be the only time 1-year displays will be permitted. In the event we are unable to fill all 80 poles in the first year we will offer a limited number of 1-year displays in 2020. When you complete your application please indicate your preference between a 1-year or 2-year display. We will fill the available slots on a first-in-first-filled basis following the lottery selection of applicants. Each application will be dated upon arrival. Please see the Standard Program Details for required materials and information. Applications for 2019 may be submitted beginning November 1st, 2019.
