Phase Two

Phase Two of the banner project will encompass all of downtown with banners honoring past and present service men and women. Names and photos will be gathered in 2021 and the additional banners will be placed in 2022 for the Memorial Holiday and stay in place through Veterans Day. The banners will remain in place for two years and then given to the sponsor as a keepsake. This will allow for the opportunity to honor more local heroes. To honor a Veteran or active duty service man or woman from Muskingum County, fill out the form below, submit an official military photo along with a $25 donation in support of the project.

There are currently 150 poles for banners.
