Chris Graham City of DeLand

120 S Florida Ave



The City of DeLand Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program was coordinated for DeLand residents to pay tribute to and honor family members that are active or past military service personnel. The City of DeLand would like to pay tribute to their service and commitment to our nation and our community by flying a prestigious banner along Woodland Boulevard in Downtown DeLand as a way to publicly express our gratitude. Any names that are submitted will be considered for City recognition.

There is no cost to apply to the program thanks to presenting sponsor AdventHealth DeLand and AdventHealth Fish Memorial. All honorees selected will be displayed on a banner in Downtown DeLand and a replica keepsake will be made. Please review the City of DeLand Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program Guidelines for further details. Please submit the application to: DeLand Hometown Heroes Military Banner Program, Office of Community Information, Third Floor, City Hall, 120 South Florida Avenue, DeLand, FL 32720 or email the application to Chris Graham at
