Due to overwhelming support from the community, we are SOLD OUT of spaces for banners for 2021! Thank you to everyone who sponsored banners or showed interest. If you want to be put on the waitlist for the 2022 program, please contact our Arts, Culture and Events Coordinator by email or 403-223-6013.

We are completely blown away by the community's support, and will be adding more spaces in 2022. Thank you for your support! 

Our community is a great place to grow, but it came at a cost. Countless men and women sacrificed in the name of peace, and it is through their sacrifice that we enjoy the freedoms we have today. Their service has not been, nor will be forgotten.

The Veterans Banner Program is not unique to Taber; it has been put forth in other communities across Canada (and the United States). This is one way the Town has chosen to recognize, honour, and remember all those who sacrificed so that we can live in peace, in partnership with our local Royal Canadian Legion Branch #20 (Taber).

We hope that by displaying the names and faces of our veterans that our community will be able to connect with the everyday people who made the extraordinary decision to serve their country.

We will remember them.
