Sonora, Ca — A special celebration is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Courthouse Park in Sonora for local Army soldier Christopher Kelly who is returning home from a tour in Iraq.

Pat Padavana with Operation Mom says that Kelly suffered hand and knee injuries a few months back when an IED exploded in front of his vehicle. Thankfully, he was able to recover and is now doing fine.

Kelly will be picked up at the Sacramento Airport on Saturday and escorted to Courthouse Park by the Patriot Guard Riders. Padavana says that the entire community is invited to the welcome home celebration that will begin at about three o´clock.
