As of Friday, July 16, we are sold out of banners. We are hopeful to expand the program and offer more next year!

Shawnee is proud to be home to veterans and to men and women currently serving in our military. We are excited to launch the Hometown Hero Project so our community can show support. The banners will be displayed on the streetlights along Nieman Road between 55th Street and Shawnee Mission Parkway September through November 2021. We had 40 spots available and those sold out in one week. We hope to expand the project next year to have even more spots available!
