In August 2011 the DLBA created 50 Remembrance Day banners that are hung annually throughout the downtown core. The original banners are now quite faded and it’s time to have them replaced. When the banners were first made, the DLBA worked with the local Legion and a professional photographer to have the photographs taken. This time they are reusing the original photos, had one submission from the public and they also set up a photo-shoot with the assistance of the Langley Lodge for a total of 35 images. Debra Hauptman, CEO of Langley Lodge stated, “Our veterans were honored to participate in this project, highlighting 35 local veterans who have served our country. We are very proud of all veterans and commend the DLBA for the Langley banner program, in honor of our local heroes”.

These banners have become a point of pride for the  downtown Langley Business Association and Langley City and have been duplicated by other communities several times since they were first unveiled in our beautiful City. “This project has been one of our favourites”, said Teri James, DLBA Executive  Director, “and every year when these go up it fills us with pride for this community. We were especially delighted to partner with the Langley Lodge to honour their Veterans, and to also receive a photo from a daughter of her 96 year-old father who was a WWII Veteran.
