Bridgeville to sell street banners to honor veterans

This sample banner salutes a local veteran. Bridgeville residents can honor their military loved ones similarly with a donation of $50.

Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Banners along Washington Avenue in Bridgeville soon will honor veterans.

Two members of the military will be honored back to back on each of the 24- by 18-inch banners planned for the street's 43 light poles. The name and photo of the veteran and the branch of service and its insignia will appear.

The cost is $50, and purchasers also will receive banners for their personal displays. So far, 45 banners have been requested.

Those remembered also will be mentioned on Bridgeville's military website. If demand continues, other highly traveled areas in the borough will have displays.

Any money not spent for installation of the banner brackets will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project.

Visit for an order form and to view a sample banner. For questions, call 412-221-4404.
