New military banners installed
By Gazette Staff Writer — Wednesday, October 16th, 2013
On Wednesday, October 9th at 10am, new military banners were installed. In October 2008, the Fillmore Unified School Board together with the City of Fillmore adopted a program to recognize the family members of Fillmore residents serving in the Military.
The program is supported by our local Veterans of Foreign War and Up for Education 501C. If your family member or you have been discharged from the military, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (805) 524-3701 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org so that arrangements may be made to have your banner removed and then presented to you or your family. Banners will be removed approximately 3 to 4 times per year and you will be advised as to the dates and time. We continue to receive phone calls and correspondence from residents and neighboring cities regarding the recognition program and hope this has given you a sense of community support and pride. We thank you and please receive our utmost gratitude for your service to our country. City of Fillmore, FUSD, Up for Education – Virginia A. de la Piedra, Local VFW.
