Applications are being accepted at the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce for the Blue Star Banner Program.
As part of the program, which is a joint effort between the City and the Chamber, banners honoring City of Crystal Lake residents and City of Crystal Lake government employees who serve in the military and who are actively deployed, are displayed on light poles on the Virginia Street Corridor.
Honoree applications and sponsorship forms can be sent to the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce, located at 427 W. Virginia St., Crystal Lake, IL 60014, Attn: Mary Margaret Maule.
Applications will be reviewed by a committee made up of members of the Crystal Lake VFW Post 12014, American Legion Post 171 and TLS Veterans on a quarterly basis.
Nominating parties will be notified prior to the banner being placed. A maximum of 16 banners will be placed in during each round of the program subject to participation.
