The Monessen American Legion Post 28 and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1190 have completed the final repairs on the banners in Monessen that were damaged by heavy winds during the spring and summer.

The banners have been reinstalled on the utility poles for the last time, any Banners that come down will now be taken and stored, the persons that purchased the Banners can contact the Monessen Public Library if they wish to have the banners. There are two identical Banners on each support. It is hoped that one of the banners would be donated to the Monessen Historical society and Museum.

The repair and preservation of these Banners has been largely due to the efforts of the following individuals, Veterans of Monessen, John A Dudas, Ron Chromulak, Perry George, Lawrence Masci, Gary Mendola, Joe Gallo and Rick Kline, Monessen City employees D. Hepple and Mark Kravets and the folks at Lifes Work, Ed Frye and frank Coppi.

The Banner program has ended and there will be no new Banners ordered or installed as has been stated previously. The Banners may still be viewed on line at for those who would like to view them.

The Monessen veterans would like to thank the public for their support of this and all the many other Veterans programs.
