Vietnam vet wants Columbia to hang banners honoring veterans

Bob Smith proposed installing pole banners (similar to the ones shown above) to honor Columbia's military veterans.

At the June 7, 2022 Columbia Borough Council Work Session, resident and Vietnam veteran Bob Smith proposed that the borough hang banners throughout town to honor Columbians who have served in the military. Each banner would hold a photo and the name of a veteran, similar to what other municipalities have done.

Smith told Columbia Spy that the project could help attract people to the downtown. He has reached out to the VFW and is also working on creating a bank account for donations. Smith asked council if borough employees could install the banners. More information will follow as it becomes available.

The project be discussed further and voted on during the June 28, 2022 council meeting.
