A special "Celebration of Service" honoring the first 39 individuals (36 banners) that are represented through the Project: Garnett Remembers patriotic pole banner project was held on May 25, 2016 (see pictures above). The celebration was the opening ceremony for the project and commemorate the flying of these banners from May 25th, just prior to Memorial Day Weekend, through Independence Day, July 4th, in the City of Garnett. The banners were on display in the downtown area and then along Highway 59.
As the second round of this project concluded there were another 48 banners presenting 49 individuals exhibited prior to Independence Day 2016. Another such celebration will take place in May 2017 (TBA).

The banners will be on display annually from prior to Memorial Day Weekend through Independence Day. Sponsorship of a banner through this project is tax deductible.
