Downtown Kenosha, Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with Kenosha Unified School District’s Harborside Academy in launching the Downtown Veterans Banner Project.
The mission of the Downtown Veterans Honor Banner Project is to place banners honoring veterans, either living or passed on, who have served in any branch of the United States Armed Forces in any conflict in Downtown Kenosha’s 6th Avenue Mainstreet.
The goal is to create the banners to be displayed seasonally through Memorial Day to Veterans Day holidays.
In addition to banners, students will interview each participating Veteran (or their families) to develop literature that will be distributed through participating downtown businesses for an ongoing free Veteran History Crawl all summer long. Stay tuned for a list of participating businesses available soon.
Keystone events will recognize participants and sponsors at Harborside Academy’s Annual Memorial Day Banquet as well as the Kenosha Public Museum’s Veterans Day Program.
