Memorial Day Tribute at the El Dorado County Veterans Monument
On Monday, May 25, 2015 at 11:00 a.m., the 10th annual Memorial Day Celebration will take place at the El Dorado County Veterans Monument, 360 Fair Lane, Placerville (at the County Government Center)Each year our community packs the El Dorado County Veterans Monument grounds to honor those who have served the cause of freedom.
The El Dorado County Veterans Monument symbolizes the freedoms, institutions, and way of life that our veterans have gallantly sacrificed to protect. During the singing of our National Anthem, the distant rumbling of vintage radial engines will be heard as a flight of WWII-era war birds approaches the monument. Their radial engines become a thundering sound – felt as much as heard – as they fill the air-space above the Veterans Monument in salute “to those who have served the cause of freedom.”Highlights of this year's tribute will include:
This is an important time for us to let our veterans know we support them.
