Veterans Day Memorial and Flag Retirement Ceremony
The Pinole Historical Society will present its 14th Veterans Day Memorial and Flag Retirement Ceremony on Friday, November 11, from 11 a.m. to noon in Fernandez Park.
We hope you can attend as the society and the City of Pinole honor the brave men and women who have served — and continue to serve — to protect the freedoms we treasure.
Songs, speeches, remembrances, tributes, and the retirement of worn U.S. flags by the Boy Scout Troop 86 will highlight the hour-long ceremony.
West Contra Costa Girl Scouts, St. Joseph School students, Pinole Valley High School Marching Band, Pinole Valley High School Concert Choir, and elected officials including Pinole Mayor Vincent Salimi and Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia, and others, will participate.
Please bring your worn and tattered American flags to the ceremony, where they will be retired with proper respect. There is no charge to retire a flag.
