|Veterans Banner Project
In 2019, the Didsbury and District Historical Society embarked upon a very special Veterans Banner Project that saw banners honouring local veterans installed on the town's light posts.
Each vibrant full colour, custom banner honours an individual veteran who served our country. The banner has a photo of the veteran, their name, the branch they served with, as well as the name of the person, family, or organization sponsoring the memorial.
The Town of Didsbury supports the project by installing the banners each September and removing them after Remembrance Day each year.
Biographies of each of the veterans appearing on the banners can be found in a binder in the Military Room of the Didsbury Museum. A relaxing afternoon can be had by sitting and reading each of their stories.
The Veterans Banner Project is being adopted by towns and cities across the country reflecting their desire to remember and pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served or currently serve our country.
The Didsbury and District Historical Society believes this project is a natural extension of their War Memorabilia display at the Didsbury Museum.
For further information on sponsoring a banner, please contact the Didsbury Museum at 403-335-9295 or Grant Hemming at 403-335-2390.
