The Troy Military Banner Committee and the Veterans of Lansingburgh will host an open house and fund raiser for the banner program at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 at the veterans group’s headquarters, 777 1st Ave. Troy.
The event will feature food, music and other entertainment, admission is $5 at the door. Organizers are also seeking food for the event.
The groups are hosting the fund raiser to help the committee cover unexpected costs for hanging banners throughout the city, as well as to maintain and update its website at www.troymilitarybanners.com. The group does charge $175 for families to honor loved ones who served the country, but all of that money goes to pay for production of the banners.
