Sponsor A Hero

The City of Lockport’s Events Planning Committee is sponsoring a new Hometown Heroes Banner Program. The banner program proudly recognizes active duty and veteran servicepersons, both living and deceased. Each banner will honor a specific Niagara County serviceperson and will include his or her name, branch of service and photo. Banners will also include the sponsor’s company name. Banners will be displayed on street lamps in Downtown Lockport along Main Street and East Avenue from Transit to Washburn and Canal Street from mid-May until mid-November.

Support a Hero BannerTo qualify, honorees must meet the following requirements
