Petawawa Honour Our Veterans Banners
Banners Below
The Petawawa Rotary Club in cooperation with The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 517, Garrison Petawawa, and the Town of Petawawa are proud to present the Honour Our Veterans Banner Program. This program has been designed to create a lasting legacy of remembrance within our community that will enable the Town of Petawawa and its residents to pay tribute to all veterans and active service members of the Canadian Armed Forces.  This “Honour Our Veterans Banner Program” will be an ongoing, annual event that will provide an opportunity to recognize all past and present military units that once operated or are presently operating on Garrison Petawawa.
Sponsorship opportunities for this program were made available to any individual member of the public, local group, local business, or association wishing to honour a unit. The Honour Our Veterans Banner Program was funded entirely through direct sponsorship of individual banners. The cost to sponsor a banner was $200.00.
Each Honour our Veteran Banner will be displayed on lamp posts in Petawawa between early October and mid-November each year, as a means to pay tribute to our veterans and active service members. Through the display of the banners, we hope to engage the community in honouring the members of our armed forces through an initiative that will ensure continued recognition and respect throughout future generations.
There are 31 past and present units in Garrison Petawawa’s long and illustrious military history plus one banner for the Petawawa Legion. 

A huge thanks goes out to:

-  Members of the Rotary Club of Petawawa for spearheading this initiative

- The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 517 for all of their support

- Town of Petawawa Council for supporting the project

-  Jordan Durocher and Mark Reinert and their team at Community Services for their support in raising the banners
