City and carwash honor U.S. military

REDLANDS, Calif. — The Hometown Heroes program recognizes and honors the city’s residents, and their immediate family members, who are serving or have served in the military.

REDLANDS, Calif. — Foamy Car Wash has been washing Hometown Heroes banners that thank local military men and women for their service as part of a collaboration between the city and the carwash, according to Redlands Daily Facts.

Established by Redlands in 2011, the Hometown Heroes program recognizes and honors the city’s residents, and their immediate family members, who are serving or have served in the military, stated the article.

“They called up and asked if this would be something we’d be willing to do,” said George Drlicka, co-owner of Foamy Car Wash, in the article. “And we said, ‘Of course.’ It’s not a problem.’”

The banners being washed at the business were recently retired, reported the article, and over 40 banners are part of a group to be cleaned by July 4 to be presented to family members during two July City Council meetings.

“The Redlanders who serve our country are important to us,” said Mayor Paul Foster in the article. “We hope their families will apply to get a Hometown Heroes banner. We believe that’s our community’s way to honor each one of them.”

Foamy Car Wash also offers military servicemen and servicewomen daily discounts, noted the article.
