Hometown Heros

The City of Avon launched a Hometown Heroes program last year that is in full swing this Memorial Day weekend.

This banner program honors and remembers those men and women that have served in the Armed Forces and have ties with the City of Avon. Each banner is in honor of a specific deceased service person and includes their name, branch of service, and photo. Banners are displayed along Detroit Road, west of Avon High School, from Memorial Day through Veteran’s Day.

The program was initiated by Avon residents Kerry Barvincak and Vincent Gargaro, who each approached the City with this idea prior to the pandemic. A committee was formed and a plan put in place where interested parties can apply through City Hall to have their loved one honored in this unique and special way.
