These banner supports are made from premium quality material and have a 10 year warranty. These are in the Corporate Sponsor level and can be added to the Donor level to become a Commemoration level sponsorship.
We had a great banner year for 2023. We added two more communities (Whitewood and Kisbey) to our 10 from last year. We added 36 banners this year, bringing our total to 141 (Commemorating 201 veterans!). Of note, we had a British Falklands War veteran, and added 13 First Nations veterans from the Carlyle area.
2024 will be even bigger as we plan to add some more communities and add to the Banner count!
Thanks again to Veterans Affairs Canada for their Community Commemorate Program Grants to help us to continue to grow and Remember our Veterans!

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, 36 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.
