Hanover Township's Veterans' Honor Roll was created to recognize residents for their honorable service in the armed forces. Currently, the Township has inducted over 385 residents into the honor roll. The names of the inductees are engraved onto the honor plaques hanging in Veterans' Hall at the Township Senior Center and added to the honor roll list on the Township website. The veterans are also invited to the bi-annual honor roll dinners for them and a guest. 

Are you or a loved one a veteran that would like to be recognized? Click here for the form and email it to, or drop it off at any Township office. Please call (847)888-8329 for more information.
