The Moorpark Military Banner Program began in 2010 thanks to the Moorpark American Legion who had the vision and saw the importance of honoring those who serve in the military. The banner program is now a collaborative effort by the Moorpark American Legion, City of Moorpark, Kiwanis Club of Moorpark.
The purpose of the Moorpark Military Banner Program is to honor the service and dedication of those who are actively enlisted and currently serving (full-time and reserve) in one of the following military organizations: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard.
In order to be considered for a banner, a candidate/service member MUST have a minimum of 1 year remaining in their active service, AND a least 2 of the following:
· Attended a Moorpark high school
· Raised in Moorpark
· Currently has family living in Moorpark
· Currently resides in Moorpark.
Candidates will be notified of acceptance of application prior to banner installation.
The cost of a banner is $225.00 and includes design, printing and installation.
Should a banner become damaged by weather or is in poor condition, it will be removed and returned to the purchaser if possible. If the service member has at least 1 year remaining of active duty, a replacement banner may be purchased.
Banners will be installed 1-2 times annually depending on the number of banners purchased. Expected life span is 2-3 years. Banners will be returned to the purchaser after being removed.
