Create Buckhannon Designing Banners to Honor Veterans

Posted: Updated:
BUCKHANNON -

Create Buckhannon is working on a project designed to honor veterans.

The Walk of Valor project will display banners representing current and retired veterans.

Create Buckhannon is working with a local printing company to create the banners, which will list each veteran's name and branch of service, with a photograph.

Organizers will hang the banners in Jawbone Park.

"Buckhannon wanted to help even more, and just get people involved in honoring those who've served the country, and just an added touch to downtown Buckhannon," said Laura Meadows, Upshur County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Organizers said they hope to hang the banners by Veterans Day, and Meadows said they'll be used on other patriotic holidays, too.

Each banner will cost $50.
