HALEYVILLE - Throughout the month of September, the American Legion Whitehead Post 33's Auxiliary will be taking applications for the veteran's banners to honor or memorialize those from this area or who are related to local residents who answered the call to serve our nation.
Members of the Auxiliary will be at the Haleyville Public Library every Saturday in September from 10-11 a.m. taking applications. The cost for a banner is $125, which will also include the hardware to have it hung from a utility pole in Haleyville. The banners are hung twice a year, around Veteran's Day and again around Memorial Day.
