Visalia’s Avenues of Heroes – The Brave Project

bravebanner

Have you noticed the banners mounted to street lamp posts on Akers Road and on Caldwell Avenue? The ones listing a name and military branch? Ever wonder where those came from? Well, this is where.

The Brave Project Visalia’s Avenue(s) of Heroes places 6′ x 3′ banners to honor Visalia residents who are serving in the United States Military. Installed at the request of families (or the service members themselves), each banner costs $450 to purchase and have mounted on a lamp post.

At this week’s Visalia Pride Lions meeting, a presentation by The Brave Project Visalia explained the program and it’s costs. The speakers told the Lions Club members and guests how the organization accepted donations to help offset the costs for families who want to honor the service of their loved one, but might find it difficult to absorb the expense.

Other service groups interested in underwriting the cost the banners can contact them directly for details.
