Renaissance is designing more banners for our city. This time, Cathy Sonnett has designed a template to honor all our
veterans. For $200 you can feature your favorite veteran on a banner. All we need is the photo (if it’s color, we will turn it into a b/w). We need the name of the soldier and the branch of service. For the form, please see the city’s website (ftthomas.org) or our Facebook page. They are also available at the Finance Department of the City Building.
