The Lions had just finished installing a banner, outside the bank. That particular banner was remembering Charlie Grieve. Coincidentally, his daughter Barb Mcinroy was walking down the street noticing the banners when she came upon the Lions installing her dad’s banner.

The Ilderton and District Lions and banner families were overwhelmed by the positive response to the Remembrance Day banner program in 2019. We are pleased to announce that we will be continuing the program and hope more people wish to remember someone in this fashion.

The Ilderton and District Lions with the concurrence of Branch 531, Royal Canadian Legion is now accepting sponsorships honouring our local Ilderton and District veterans. The banners will be displayed on various hydro poles in the main business section of Ilderton during the weeks prior to November 11th each year.

Each banner is approximately 30”x60” and will have,

  • a photo (if available) of the veteran.
  • veteran’s name
  • the unit or service which the veteran served (RCAF, RCN, Canadian Army for example)
  • the veteran’s deployment (WW1, WW2, Korea for example)
  • the sponsor’s (honoured by) name

The applicant’s cost for printing banner is $275. To begin the process please download this application form [Remembrance Day Banner].
