May: Military Appreciation 

Wow!  The month of May is almost gone and I’m just now getting to my monthly blog.  As everyone knows, this time of year can get extremely busy and the City is no different. I hope everyone was able to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend and various events that were held down here in Fountain. I’ve always enjoyed the patriotism of our community and recently hearing that an insurance company deemed Fountain “The most patriotic city in the U.S.” because of the number of current and retired service members as a percent of our population just boosted that sense of pride even more!

The City just started a new Military Banner Appreciation program called “Hometown Heroes.”  This program allows families to purchase a military appreciation banner on behalf of their immediate family member that is currently serving on active duty for one of the Nations’ Military branches.  This program is designed to honor the men and women currently serving our Nation and Community.  These banners are displayed for approximately one year on designated street light and/or power poles along major thoroughfares in the City of Fountain and its Utility Service Area.  The program is funded primarily through the applicant fees paid by banner sponsors, as well as donations provided by residents and businesses in the community.

We’re hoping that our community takes advantage of this program and shows the pride that we have in our military family.  If you’re interested in learning more, take a look at the City’s website at
