The Thomasville Hometown Banner Program is a living tribute created for the community to recognize and honor Veterans who are serving or have served our country in the United States Armed Forces and First Responders. To qualify, a Veteran/First Responder living or deceased, must have lived in Thomasville, Alabama at some point in their life. The banner will be 24”x48” heavy vinyl, printed the same on both sides, will display the service person’s photograph, including their full name, branch of the military, and era of service (WWI, WWII, Vietnam, etc...). First Responders will include their full name and position and dates (Police Chief, Fire Chief, Officer, etc…). Banners will be displayed from the end of June through Veterans Day in November. Banners will be removed and stored until the same period in the following year at which time they will be re-displayed.
Each banner requires the Hometown Heroes form to be filled out, a photograph of the hero in uniform, and a payment of $130.00 payable to “Thomasville Alabama Chamber of Commerce”, memo “Hometown Hero”. Checks can be brought by or mailed to the Thomasville Alabama Chamber of Commerce office at 138 Wilson Ave, Thomasville, Alabama 36784. For questions concerning qualification or for an application, contact the Thomasville Alabama Chamber of Commerce at 334-636-1542.
We are always accepting banner applications, but please note in order to have a banner hung for the 2022 Hometown Celebration, the application must be submitted by May 2nd by 4:00pm.
