Brian Pugh: Croton-on-Hudson Veterans Banner Program

Dear Neighbors:brian-pugh-group-cropped

Over the years, our Village has sought to honor those from our community who served our country. Starting this November, the Village will offer friends and families the opportunity to sponsor banners of individuals   in honor of residents of the Village who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces.  These personalized banners will be mounted on utility poles throughout the Village.

An electronic application will be available online at https://www.crotononhudson-ny.gov/home/news/croton-hudson-2020-veterans-banner-programwww.crotononhudson-ny.gov.  Hard copies of the application are also available through the Croton Veterans’ Council.  Applicants will be responsible for having the banners printed according to the specifications in the application. The Village Department of Public Works will hang these banners for veterans for free and as part of their regular work duties.

Almost 300 Village residents are veterans.  Wherever they served, they deserve our appreciation.  The continuation of our democracy depends on such brave men and women willing to answer our country’s call.

We must work toward a peaceful future, in which war is a memory and our families and our communities  no longer know the sorrow of losing sons and daughters. At the same time, we must continue to remember and honor those who served and sacrificed

Brian Pugh, Mayor
