Ajax Banner Program
The Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 322 and the Town of Ajax are pleased to announce the Ajax Banner Program. We are currently accepting application for 2022. This project is an ongoing legacy that pays tribute to all Canadian and Allied veterans and active service personnel as well as employees of the Defence Industries Limited (D.I.L.) in Ajax during the second world war. Legion membership by the honouree or the sponsor is not a requirement to participate in the program.
Banners will be displayed on lamp post in Ajax during from October 1st to November 12th each year, as a means to pay tribute to our local veterans, deceased veterans and active service members and former employees of D.I.L. Through the display of the banners, we hope to engage the community in honouring and remembering veterans and D.I.L. employees through an initiative that will ensure continued recognition and respect throughout future generations.
Each banner will be in honour of a specific service person or D.I.L. employee with a family connection to Ajax. It will include their name, era served, branch of service, photograph, and the name of the sponsor.
The Banner Program will be funded through sponsorship if individual banners. The cost to sponsor a banner is $150.00. Application forms are available below or for pick up at the Royal Canadian Legion or by clicking the link below. Completed Applications must be received by the Ajax Legion by August 15th 2022.
