Coxsackie Hometown Heroes

Hometown Heroes

The Coxsackie Hometown Heroes banner program was the idea of Ronald Daoust, a lifelong resident of Coxsackie, and past Commodore of Coxsackie American Legion Post 166. Sadly, Ron was unable to see his vision come to fruition. A few years later, his brother, Donald Daoust, along with Lou Martin, Bill Steele, Yale Frank Jr. and Suellen Meier were able to continue the vision in Ron’s memory by forming a new committee. Later joining the committee were Bob Desrosiers and Kaaren Kiernan. With the help of numerous community volunteers who supported the program, the project was completed.

Now, as you ride through the village of Coxsackie, you will see streets lined with 169 banners to honor its veterans. Much gratitude is given to the Coxsackie residents and local businesses for their support, along with the Greene County Legislators for approving a grant from the Wayne C. Speenburgh Grant Program.
