The City of Escondido is pleased to announce the Escondido Hero Banner Program. The program honors men and women who serve, or have served, in the U.S. Armed Forces by offering personalized banners that will be hung from approximately Memorial Day (mid-May) to Veterans Day (mid-November) in Downtown Escondido along Grand Avenue, 2nd Avenue and Valley Parkway.

Banners include a photo of the hero, their name and customizable text that can include their military branch, special awards or honors they received, etc. Banner orders are being taken through early May. The banners are being offered for $140, which simply recovers the cost to produce them.

If you would like to order a banner you may do so online at www.escondido.org/herobanner.aspx .  If you have questions about the banner program, please contact Michelle Geller at 760-839-4587.
