THE GOAL: To have over 100 pole banners (similar to the picture on the left) representing service men and women of Anderson County on display on Garnett's town square, as well as US Highway 59, Highway 169 (6th Avenue), Main Street, Oak and Park Road.
UPDATE! Thanks to the amazing support by the many sponsors (family members and friends), there will be a total of139 banners representing 146 honorees that will fly in tribute to these military honorees in time for Memorial Day weekend and will remain on display through Independence Day, July 4. The banners will be removed for preservation on or after the end of July. This project is in conjunction with the Garnett Community Foundation with significant work performed by the Garnett Electric Distribution Department.
THANK YOU... To the Garnett Community Foundation for their partnership.
A special "Celebration of Service" honoring the individuals that are represented through the Project: Garnett Remembers patriotic pole banner project will be held on Thursday, May 25, 2017 (see 2016 ceremony pictures above). The celebration is the opening ceremony for the project. Information about this event will be announced very soon. Please watch this page, the Garnett Facebook page, and local newspapers.
