We do hope that you will join us to commemorate Veterans Day at the Orange County Veterans Memorial on Friday, November 10th. Much has happened at the site since Memorial Day. Walkways are appearing, there is a Visitors Kiosk, and the flag is proudly waving.
Veterans Day is Nov 11th, and we are preparing for a ceremony at the site on Friday, Nov 10th at 11 a.m. Our speaker is Larry Hall, Secretary of State for Military & Veterans Affairs. Second Lieutenant Anna Page will serve as the Chaplain. We also look forward to the Civil Air Patrol assisting us. We will post an event program shortly.
Donations are picking up, but there is much yet to do. We thank the Orange County Commissioners for their generous $15,000 matching fund. That means that every private donor’s contribution will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15,000. Why only private? The memorial is a gift of the people and, although there are large donations, it is you who are the foundation to the memorial. Your dollars are just as important and will comprise the bulk of the donations made.
