The Moorhead Military Banner Recognition program was established to honor current military personnel who reside in Clay County or those military members who have an immediate family member* living in Clay County. Each street light banner will have the name, branch and photo of the serviceperson. *Immediate family members are considered wife, husband, son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, son-in-law or daughter-in-law.
Clay County residents with family members currently serving in the military may honor their loved one’s service to our Country with a recognition banner proudly displayed along Main Ave, between Veterans Memorial Bridge and 11 St S. The anticipated timeline for the 2019-2020 submittals is as follows:
- August 2019 - February 2020: Receive banner submittals
- February 2020-March 2020: Production of banners
- March/April 2020: Installation of banners
- Spring/Summer 2021: Removal of banners
- Banner material allows placement for approximately one year. Future Active Military Banner programs may occur - check back for updates!
