La Cañada Flintridge Program to Honor Fallen Service Members

The city of La Cañada Flintridge has announced the launch of its Gold Star Heroes Banner Program. The program, established by the City Council, is designed to honor LCF residents’ ultimate sacrifice and acknowledge their families’ profound loss and ongoing healing.
Throughout the month of May, the city will display banners created for each Gold Star recipient on light poles on Foothill Boulevard near Memorial Park. The banners will feature the service member’s full name, rank, photograph and branch of service as a poignant reminder of their dedication and sacrifice.
Residents and community members are encouraged to submit applications to have their loved ones featured in the program. Applications will be accepted through Wednesday, May 1. All applications must be complete and accompanied by proof of eligibility, which can be submitted online at CityOfLCF.org/Gold-Star-Heroes-Program, in person at City Hall or via email at jburghdorf@lcf.ca.gov. The city of La Cañada Flintridge provides this program free of charge.
To be eligible for inclusion in the program, honorees must meet specific criteria:

  • Military personnel must be Gold Star recipients, having died as a result of active-duty military service, and
  • Military personnel must have either resided in or attended a school in La Cañada Flintridge, or
  • The Gold Star family member (applicant) must be or have been a resident of La Cañada Flintridge.
    For more information about the Gold Star Heroes Banner Program, including eligibility criteria and the application process, please visit CityOfLCF.org/Gold-Star-Heroes-Program.
