Banners are $150 and will hang downtown as part of Emporia's All Veterans Tribute for three straight years. After that, Main Street will call to see if you want the banner hung another three years or returned to you. Online and paper maps are also being developed, and background stories are now becoming part of the project.

Information is posted online at www.emporiamainstreet.com or you can call 340-6430.
