Essential workers have been putting their safety on the line to help fight COVID-19 since day one of the pandemic, and the Community of Lebanon Association (CLA) has decided to honor their effort by creating the Hometown Essential Service Heroes Banner Program.

The organization will be designing banners to showcase the essential workers of Lebanon County.

Each banner will be 24 inches wide and 48 inches long and will be hung in downtown Lebanon for at least two years. Each one will cost $210.

This is an example of what the banners will look like. Each banner will be dedicated to essential workers in Lebanon County. (Provided photo)

Those who want to nominate an essential worker for a banner can fill out an application on the CLA website with their nominee’s name, credentials, company or organization and photo. Eligible nominees include healthcare workers, EMTs, firefighters, ambulance staff, police, nursing home staff, grocery store workers and post office workers. 

Nomination applications will be available until July 31 but CLA will be able to order additional banners in groups of ten at a time after the initial order. CLA aims to have the first round of banners up around mid-August.

By putting up these banners, CLA is showing essential workers the recognition they have earned through their service to the community.
