Novato Honors Veterans With Hometown Heroes Banners Downtown

The city of Novato will honor local veterans on Memorial Day by displaying photos of 60 Hometown Heroes on banners hung from lampposts along Grant Avenue.

The salute to local servicemen and servicewomen who live and work in Novato is part of the city's Novato Proud campaign now in its second year.

The banners will remain on the lampposts through Veterans Day in November.

"Memorial Day honors those who have made the greatest sacrifice for our nation," City Manager Regan Candelario said. "It also reminds us that those brave servicemen and women have colleagues and comrades who live and work among us today in our communities.

"We're proud to be able to thank these heroes for their service and reflect upon the contributions they have made and continue to make every day," Candelario said.

Veterans living in Novato who want to be included in the city's online gallery or who know someone who is a veteran should contact the city.
