Call for Stories for Veterans Day Ceremony

Veterans Day is November 11, 2012

Do you or someone you know have a story to tell about former military service, or family history that has been passed down from generation to generation by writing or oral tradition?

The City of Walnut Creek wants to hear all about them in preparation for their upcoming Veterans Day Ceremony to take place November 12 at the Lesher Center for the Arts.

The veterans will be listed in the Veterans Day program and they or their family representative will receive a certificate of appreciation from the City Council at the November 12 ceremony.

Come and help honor the veterans among us and recognize their contributions to our country.

To share a story or simply a veteran's name and service history (branch of service and dates), please contact Suzie Martinez by 5:00pm Friday, November 2. Her email is smartinez@walnut-creek.org or (925) 943-5819

I suggest Suzie Martinez check records to locate Vets who are from WC but who now live out of state. Many of these people have never heard of WC Patch and should have an equal opportunity in telling their stories.
