Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Celebration
The state of California has designated March 30th as “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day”. There will be an event celebrating and honoring our local vets next week.
Frank Smart, a local veterans activist, was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Vietnam Veterans’ Chapter #391 along with the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce, Black Oak Casino Resort will be celebrating Vietnam Veteran’s Recognition Day with a special benefit event to be held at the Four Tradewinds Conference Center inside of the Black Oak Casino Resort on Friday, March 27, 2015 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM.
This special night will kick off with the doors opening at 6:30 PM for delicious appetizers.
The evening will consist of a special video presentation and a special guest speaker, Kate O’ Hare Palmer, who will talk about her years as a nurse in Vietnam.
The evening will be capped by a (clean) Comedian.
A Veteran’s Art Show will also be on display from noon Friday March 27th until Saturday afternoon March 28th.
This benefit’s proceeds provide support for the Vietnam Veterans’ Post # 391 and the Tuolumne County Chamber of Commerce.
The Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran’s Program was the brainchild of Vietnam Veterans’ Chapter #391. Their program started with the hugely successful Welcome Home parade in 2010.
Tickets information is available by contacting the Tuolumne County Chamber offices at 209-532-4212.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
