East Wenatchee joins Wenatchee in Heroes Banners Project


East Wenatchee will be joining Wenatchee in November in what’s becoming an annual and growing effort to honor area veterans. [

The Heroes Banners Project, which features banners that hang downtown all month, certainly drew rave reviews last year.

They feature a photo, name, branch of service and years served by the veteran.

Thus far, only downtown Wenatchee has participated in the banner project.

However, now the Wenatchee Downtown Association and the city of East Wenatchee are both participating.

As a result, they’re inviting people to submit ideas for veterans to be honored this year.
