The eighth annual Veterans Memorial Ceremony will be held Monday, May 27, at 10 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial in Dame Shirley Plaza across from the courthouse in Quincy.
There will be a variety of speakers, including Assemblyman Brian Dahle, with music provided by the Kepple sisters.
The event will also feature an invocation, flag raising and other tributes.
In 2006, Plumas County residents donated $15,000 to build the Veterans Memorial.
A stone was purchased and inscribed. Local contractors poured the foundation and erected the monument. Sidewalks were poured and a flagpole and benches were located near the monument.
Veteran Memorial Committee chairman Bob Zernich said that more work needs to be completed. To donate, call Zernich at 283-1010.
Zernich invites all county residents to attend this year’s ceremony. Refreshments will be served following the event.
