The Spotsylvania Community Engagement and Tourism Departments are proud to honor our servicemen and women by facilitating the Spotsylvania Hometown Heroes Program. This program is a community memorial to those who have served our country through the years. The Hometown Heroes Banners are paid for by sponsors who may be friends, family, community organization or businesses.
To be eligible the veteran:
Served in either Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard, Coast Guard, or Merchant Marines
Was honorably discharged, currently serving, or died in combat
Lived in Spotsylvania County at some point in their lifetime
The photo of your hero will need to be at least 300 dpi if scanned, but over 600 dpi is best. Or submit a photo with the application that is no larger than 10”x14”
The cost is $80 for a double sided banner and the life of the banner is about 3 years. Business sponsorships will be listed on the Hometown Heroes page on VisitSpotsy.com
**Nominations will open mid-summer and close in the fall. Please check back for specific dates.
In light of the COVID-19 and recent restrictions put in place, we want to consolidate information to make it easy for everyone to know what is going on in Spotsylvania and helps for Tourism businesses in the area. This Page will provide you with more information.
