Letter: Thanks for your support

To the Editor:

The Blue Star Banner Program is very grateful to Overhead Garage Doors for its donation to our city’s program to honor our active duty military.

Without the support of community members, we could not continue the program, as we operate solely on donations to purchase the beautiful, personalized banners honoring our heroes. 

Our city can be proud of these banners suspended from light poles along “Heroes Row,” the section of Route 14 
between Dole Avenue and Virginia Street. Thank you, Dwayne and Jennifer, for your support of the program! 

Donna McAnally

Blue Star Banner Program chairwoman
