For the third year in a row the Rotary Club of Port Hope has been involved in displaying banners of Port Hope veterans. With the assistance of the Municipality of Port Hope, Port Hope Legion, and the Port Hope Heritage Business Improvement Area, fifty Port Hope veterans have banners hung up in their honour in and around Port Hope this year.

The veteran banners can be seen on John Street, Mill Street, Queen Street, Ontario Street, Lents Lane, and Rotary Park.

Regularly attending Remembrance Day ceremonies at the Port Hope cenotaph, Port Hope Rotarians recognized that it would be a great idea to put faces to the names of those that are remembered every November 11th. The Rotary Club, the municipality, and the HBIA, worked together to design the banners and then asked the public to submit applications for banners. Thirty banners were put up the first year and forty-one were put up in year two.
