An annual gathering of local people turning out to show their support for the nation’s armed forces will be held Saturday, July 15, at the Lafayette Reservoir picnic area and bandshell.
Speakers and a somber reading of the names of 23 Contra Costans killed while on active service since 9-11 will be supported by patriotic and festive music provided by the Big Band of Rossmoor.
The tribute event is free though there is a fee to park at the reservoir. Things kick off at 5 p.m. and attendees are invited to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnic fare.
