CALLING ON ALL UNITED STATES MILITARY VETERANS LIVING IN WALNUT!
The City of Walnut would like to pay tribute and recognize military veterans that live in the City. Currently, we pay tribute to active military personnel via our "Support the Troops" Program, however, we would like to extend our appreciation to those that have served in years prior by featuring them on WCTV Channel 3 (Charter subscribers) and Channel 21 (Verizon subscribers). Please contact City Hall at (909) 595-7543 if you are a veteran.
The City of Walnut would like to recognize our community’s military men and women by placing banners with our local heroes’ names on them. The banners are located on the City’s streets including La Puente Road and Lemon Avenue. Since 2003, we have recognized more than 112 men and women. If you know a Walnut resident that is serving in the military, please contact Jonathan Nih at (909) 595-7543.
The City recognizes residents who have made a contribution to the community in several ways. Citizens may be recognized at City Council meetings with a proclamation or commendation by the City Council. Citizens and community organizations are honored for a variety of contributions and accomplishments. Citizens who have made a significant impact on the community may also be remembered by the naming of a street or facility in their memory. The City has an application process for the naming of facilities and streets which is subject to review by the City Council. To pick up an application or to request a commendation from the City Council, please contact the City Clerk at (909) 595-7543.
The City has a program that ensures our Nation’s flag flies over Walnut on all patriotic holidays. The American flag program is supported by the City and donations from residents. If you would like to make sure the American flag program continues, you can donate $20 to the City’s programs. A donation may be made by contacting City Hall at (909) 595-7543.
