Four Additional Blue Star Banners Installed

Crews have installed four additional banners along West Jefferson Boulevard as part of the Blue Star Banner program, which recognizes City of Fort Wayne residents and City government employees who are actively deployed.

The service members include:
Gunnery Sergeant, Anthony K. Dunaway, U.S. Marine Corps
Specialist, Joshua Gullett, U.S. Army
Sergeant, Nathan Miller, U.S. Army
Master Sergeant, Kris A. Schleinkofer, U.S. Air Force

The Blue Star Banner program started under Mayor Tom Henry’s leadership in May 2014.

Banners are displayed on light poles along West Jefferson Boulevard from the Time Corners area to Swinney Park. Banners are displayed through early November and then removed to protect them from the cold weather months.

Individuals or companies interested in making a donation to the Blue Star Banner program by being a sponsor may contact Karen Richards, Mayor’s Office, (260) 427-2146 and karen.richards.
