The City of Long Beach in conjunction with The Long Beach Rosie the Riveter Foundation wishes to show our pride and respect for the brave men and women who are serving in all branches of the military. The Long Beach Hometown Heroes Project consists of banners displayed along Clark Avenue between Carson Avenue and Spring Street and in the Long Beach Rosie the Riveter Park and Interpretive Center. A short biography and photograph will also be included on our website: The cost for each banner is $270 and individuals, organizations and businesses may sponsor banners. Additionally, a permanent plaque can be placed on the Memorial Wall at the Long Beach Rosie the Riveter Park for an additional $100. Banners will hang up to 12 months and then be given to the families of the service member. If you know of a Long Beach resident or alumnus of a Long Beach high school that is currently serving, please share this form with their family, so they can be represented with a banner on Clark Avenue.
