Hometown Heroes is a national program which honors veterans and first responders by hanging banners throughout town.

The Faribault Hometown Heroes is a project started by Virginia van Sluis of the Faribault Elks and assisted by Deb Petersen, Commander of the Faribault Chapter of DAV.
We took the idea to the Chamber of Commerce, Parks & Rec, and Faribault City Council and all organizations welcomed the project for Faribault as a way for citizens of the community to honor their loved ones who served this great country and our own Hometown Heroes.

We are certain Hometown Heroes Faribault will become a welcomed tradition for our community.

A banner example:

Each banner will be 30” x 60” and displayed on the light posts within Faribault for a period of 6 months.

The Banner will have information about the Veteran or First Responder(s) along with a photograph.

Banners can be purchased for $180.00 each and are tax deductible. The first batch will be displayed from Veterans Day 2021 until Memorial Day 2022. We are certain Hometown Heroes Faribault will become a welcomed tradition for our community.

In addition, for each banner a web page will be be created under the FaribaultHometownHeroes.org web site, with additional information, if submitted.
