October 17, 2019 - Crews have installed an additional banner as part of Mayor Tom Henry’s Blue Star Banner program. The newest banner is for Staff Sergeant Arturo A. Vargas, U.S. Army. This is the final banner that will be added this year.

The Blue Star Banner initiative started in May 2014 and recognizes City of Fort Wayne residents and City government employees who are actively deployed.

Banners are displayed on light poles along West Jefferson Boulevard from the Time Corners area to Swinney Park through November and then removed during the winter months.
