Veterans Memorial Banner Program

The Municipality of the District of Yarmouth will be launching a Veteran Memorial Banner Program to honour local Veterans of the Municipality. 

Families and friends of Veterans will be able to sponsor a 48”H x 24” W vinyl banner honouring their beloved Veteran(s). The full colour banner will display a picture
of the Veteran, their name and service details along with the sponsor’s name.

The banners will be displayed on power poles in the following hamlets in November of each year; Port Maitland, Arcadia, South Ohio, and Carleton.


The banners will be removed, stored and put up by the Municipality for a period of three years after which the sponsor is free to keep their banner or apply to become a sponsor for another three-year period.

The program will begin by providing up to ten banners in each hamlet in the first year and adding an additional ten per community in the second year and third years; for a total of 120 banners across 4 communities.

The program is now open for applications on a first-come-first-served basis.

For those interested in applying, PLEASE NOTE the following important information:

*  The cost for each banner is $140.00 plus tax ($161.00) for a duration of 3 years.

*  There are currently 10 banner spots available in each hamlet
