GARNETT REMEMBERS -CELEBRATION OF SERVICE KEEPSAKE PROGRAM
THANK YOU... To the Garnett Community Foundation for their partnership.
The Project: Garnett Remembers, a patriotic pole banner project started in 2016. The sixth phase of the project held in 2020 included 255 banners, 262 honorees. The final phase of this project ended December 31, 2020 bringing the total of honorees to 313 banners representing 320 honorees.
Started in 2016, this is a very special community project that has brought together residents and extended family members from across the United States to recognize and the selfless sacrifices of these individuals whose faces adorn each banner.
The banners are exhibited throughout Garnett on city utility and light poles. Military men and women who have served the United States Air Force, Army, Army National Guard, Coast Guard, Marines and Navy with ties to Garnett and Anderson County are represented on these banners that will proudly fly from prior to Memorial Day weekend through Independence Day (July 4), and will not be removed until the end of July.
There are 320 banner honorees in all. The Garnett Remembers patriotic banner project is made possible through the Garnett Community Foundation, with great emphasis on the work performed by City of Garnett Electric Department employees.
We will be planning the Celebration of Service for Thursday, May 26, 2022 to be a "Cruise Night" celebration. Join us on Garnett's historic town square for a night of patriotism and nostalgia!
The dedication of the Anderson County Veterans Memorial was officially rescheduled for Sunday, June 13th at 2 p.m. The announcement will be made soon on when the kiosks are on and open for use by the public.
