Permission has been granted by Entegrus and the County of Middlesex to attach powder coated, laser cut, metal display ‘banners’ to their utility poles along Frank and Metcalfe Street west. This is the route from the cenotaph, past the Legion Hall, to the Strathroy Cemetery.
Each Memorial Banner is approximately 24″ wide and 42″ tall. Each banner will be different, but they have these common features: the Lions logo in a circle at the top, the words Strathroy and Caradoc to represent our community, a large circular area that will have the crest / badge / emblem of each different battalion, the name of the battalion, and at the bottom, the name of the sponsor of the banner. All graphics will be in full colours, and be made of the same durable material used for the images on road signs.
Below is a sample of the laser cut (no colours vinyl) signs already up in Lucan, and an artist’s rendering(a poor one) of a sample banner. [Double click to enlarge photo, hit back button < to return to page.]
These pole mounted metal ‘banners will be placed on poles starting at the cenotaph on Frank Street, and then continue along Metcalfe Street West toward and eventually past the Legion Hall. Here is a street map with the route marked in blue.
