Honor a Vet with a Hero Banner

The City of Vineland is offering individuals, families, or other sponsors the chance to honor a veteran with a hometown hero banner on the lampposts along Landis Avenue.

The United Veterans Council is a significant partner in the project. The banners will be on display year-round.

City Solicitor Rick Tonetta inspired the program and Mayor Anthony Fanucci, City Council, and Public Safety Director Edwin Alicea implemented it.

The large banners will contain the name and a photo of the veteran, deceased veteran, or active-duty service member, dates of service, and other important information.

A banner costs $159 plus tax, payable directly to Sir Speedy of Vineland. Sir Speedy can be reached at 856-691-0741, or by e-mail at sirspeedyvineland@gmail.com.
