Veterans Day Ceremony - New Location

At the October 18 Parks, Recreation, Marina, Cultural Commission (PRMCC) Meeting, board members accepted the recommendation of the Veterans Commission to relocate the Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs to Ignacio Plaza, at Alhambra Ave. and Henrietta St., on a permanent basis.

Letters were sent to neighbors around Ignacio Plaza describing the plan to move the annual Veterans Day Program to Ignacio Plaza from the All Veterans Monument at Alhambra Avenue and Berrellesa. The main reasons for the change in venue are safer access and improved acoustics at Ignacio Plaza. The ceremony will take place on Friday, November 11, beginning at 11am, concluding at 12:30 pm. There will be a short set up and take down period. The event is open to the public and will have a number of speakers using a PA system, a musical tribute to veterans, and a 21-gun salute.
