One local community has come up with an idea to salute our veterans all year round. The tribute will come in the form of banners. The Tamaqua Chamber of Commerce came up with the idea. Families from the Tamaqua area will be able to purchase a banner featuring the picture and name of veterans or loved ones, currently serving in the military. The banners will then be hung from the recently installed light poles throughout the downtown. Banners cost two-hundred dollars each to buy, but some of that fee will be channeled back into the community. Twenty-five dollars from the sale of each banner will go to support programs at the Tamaqua American Legion.
