SOLCHS is proud to announce the

 Hometown Hero Banner Program for 2018


            This program, which many towns and cities across America have adopted in recent years, is meant to be a tribute to those men and women who are serving or have served in the military or serve or have served in the role of first responders as members of police, fire, and medical emergency departments.



            Each banner will commemorate the "heroes" with their name, picture, company station name, branch of service, and era of service, and they will also include the name of those people, groups, or organizations sponsoring the banner.  The banner will cost $200 and are made of heavy vinyl each measuring 2' X 4'.  Each will be two-sided with picture and information, including sponsor names, and will be hung on the light poles on Pitt Street in Schellsburg from January 2018 to November 2018.Banners will be cleaned and returned to the sponsor when they are taken down. A celebration date will be announced later.



             Applications have been submitted for the 2018 banner program!  We are happy to report we have 16 Hometown Hero Banner!


Thank you to all who showed an interest in our Banner Program.  If positive response follows, we hope to continue this program and offer applications for 2019.  Check back for details.

If you or anyone you know is thinking about waiting until the next round to allow others to be the first, while that is thoughtful, it would be better to fill the light poles on the first round as I do believe that once people see how big, beautiful and honorable these banners are, we will have an increased response next year.

The hometown does not need to be strictly Schellsburg.  In one instance, the honoree is from Johnstown, but spent a good deal of time at Shawnee Lake.  Also, one person is putting both his mother and father on a banner together - totally doable and a great idea!  Whateverconnects you or your loved one, who you wish to honor, to our area, is what makes it work!

One last thing, if you are unable to find a picture of the person you wish to honor in uniform, no problem because whatever picture you choose is what we can put on the banner.  We have some really nice pictures so far!
