GARNETT, KS: The public is invited to a special event to be held on Thursday, May 27, 2021. The Celebration of Service will begin at 7:00 p.m. on the Anderson County Courthouse lawn, to recognize the patriotic banner honorees. Please bring lawn chairs, and food and beverages if you wish.
This is a very special event that honors the individuals represented through 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 310.
This project has brought together residents and extended family members from across the United States to recognize the selfless sacrifices of these individuals whose faces adorn each banner.
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, at minimum, until the end of July.
The Celebration of Service is hosted by the City of Garnett. Banner honorees, their family, friends and the community is invited to attend and show support for those who serve and protect our freedom. City, County and State dignitaries are always invited.
The Garnett Remembers patriotic banner project is made possible through the Garnett Community Foundation and city staff, with great emphasis on the work performed by the Garnett Electric Department.
Special thanks to the City and County Commissions, Everett Cox, the Garnett Area Community Band, American Legion, VFW, and American Legion Riders.
