The Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance’s Tourism Committee is encouraging county residents to conduct driving tours to visit historical markers and veterans banners in the county.
Committee member Stephanie Temple (left) holds brochures identifying the locations of the historical markers throughout the county and Sheena Striker holds a pamphlet which leads families to the locations of the individual veterans banners. The material will be available in the vestibule of the Alliance on South Detroit Street in Kenton throughout the weekend.
Roger Crowe, organizer of the veterans banner project, holds one of the banners which are displayed in Kenton and Dunkirk. There are 391 located in Kenton and about 25 in Dunkirk this year, he said.
A map identifying the location of the banners is available on the group’s Facebook page at hardincountyvetsbanners.com.
