Shirlee’s Ultimate Gym for Women announces an essay contest to choose someone to honor with an Upland Hero’s Banner. The Upland Adopt-A-Soldier Military Banner Program raises money for banners to be hung throughout the City of Upland to recognize our men and women who serve in the military and protect our country. It is run by volunteers and all banners are purchased and placed using the donations received. Each banner costs $225 to sponsor.
Shirlee’s is asking our members to help us choose an Upland resident serving in the military that we will sponsor. If you know of someone you would like to nominate, please write a short essay of no more than 500 words about this service member and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit at the front desk before May 15, 2016.
As a sponsor, Shirlee’s will receive recognition in the Upland Today quarterly newsletter, acknowledgement at a City Council meeting, a certificate of recognition, and a letter stating the name of the military person we sponsor. In addition, the name of the gym will appear at bottom of our banner. The military family will receive a letter stating that our gym sponsored their loved one’s banner. We think the banner program is a wonderful opportunity to show Shirlee’s support of our community members who protect our country.
We want your input on choosing someone to honor. If you need help in writing an short essay, please talk to someone at the front desk. Thank you for your support.
