Here is our purchase program. We have 3 levels (see right). We also have 10 banner hardware available so far in Estevan and the same in Carlyle. This may change as we get sponsors for more hardware (that's the main part). If you have a family member or friend that is or was from these areas, we can help with the banner.

Thanks Veterans Affairs!!
The South East Military Museum would like to acknowledge and thank everyone who took part in the inaugural year of the Remembrance Banner Program.
Thanks to financial support from the City of Estevan, the Southern Plains Co-Op in Estevan and Carlyle, the Town of Lampman and Veteran Affairs Canada’s Commemorative Partnership Program, we were able to purchase the hardware required to hang remembrance banners throughout Estevan and surrounding areas.
With the support and approval of the community councils and help from the public works crews and SaskPower, 35 banners were successfully placed in Estevan, Weyburn, Lampman, Midale, Stoughton, Carlyle and Redvers.
The banners act as a visual reminder and commemorate those who served and sacrificed for Canada–from the First and Second World Wars to Afghanistan. The program will return in the summer of 2022 with banners being hung at the end of August until after Remembrance Day.
