The Covington Veterans Foundation will conduct sales of veteran tribute banners for display in November from Mon., Sept. 28, through Fri., Oct. 9.
The project began last year, when the Foundation sold more than 240 of the banners, which are to be displayed annually during the month of November in downtown Andalusia.
“We were thrilled with the response we received last year,” CVF Chairman John Vick said. “We have already had inquiries about adding banners and are pleased to announce this year’s sales. This tribute to our local veterans in the public space brings attention to the service and sacrifice of these individuals. We can never thank them enough for their services to our country.”
Vick said the CVF also is selling tribute banners for current active duty military personnel this year.
The Covington Veterans Foundation will display all banners in Andalusia. However, it also has entered an agreement with the City of Opp to duplicate banners of Opp area veterans which will be displayed in that city’s downtown area.
The banners are $100 each and include a photograph of the veteran. The banners will be used each year.
Forms can be downloaded from the Covington Veterans Foundation Facebook page or the City of Andalusia’s website. They also are available in the Covington County Veterans Service Office in the County Administration Building, in Andalusia City Hall.
Banners can be purchased on the third floor of the Andalusia City Hall between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Sept. 28 through Oct. 9. A high-quality photograph of the veteran in uniform should accompany the form and payment. Because of COVID-related production and shipping delays, the deadline cannot be extended.
