We were considered it our honor once again to honor Veterans and our Active Duty Military at our annual Veterans Day Dinner last week. It was a smashing success. We had over 235 guests, including spouses, civic leaders, police officers and friends of Veterans. Captain Harry Bolton, of the US Maritime Academy was our honored speaker. We hosted 38 Active Duty military and their spouses. Dignitaries such as Rear Admiral Todd Sokalzuk, Mayor Trish Spenser, and Alameda Council Members Jim Oddie and Marilyn Ashcraft were in attendance. We were also honored by the presence of several Blue Star families.
We even made the KTVU evening news! Pretty soon, it will be time to plan next year’s event.
