The Downtown Schenectady Improvement Corporation (DSIC) and City of Schenectady are partnering for a seventh year on this program, which proudly recognizes active-duty service members and military veterans (living or deceased). Each banner will honor a specific Schenectady County service member and will include his or her name, branch of service, and photo. Banners will be displayed on light poles around Downtown Schenectady from late May until mid-November.
A public nominations process is currently underway to identify eligible honorees for available banners sponsored by local companies. To qualify, honorees must meet the following requirements:
There is no cost to nominate a service member. A Hometown Heroes Nomination Form must be completed and submitted to the DSIC by Friday, March 26, 2021. All qualified nominees will be selected for a banner on a first come first serve basis; those who are selected will be notified no later than the week of March 29.
