Veterans Day (Nov. 11) is a day of remembrance and celebration that has occurred in Auburn each year on Nov. 11 since 1919. It is a day to honor all who served and are still serving their country with honor and pride. Business and community leaders have voiced their admiration for the production of a quality patriotic community event. The parade participants march with pride. The spectators cheer with enthusiasm. Each year, the number of participants and spectators grow larger, and this year will be no exception. Commemorative medals are awarded to veteran parade participants and spectators. American flags and programs are distributed along the parade route. A complimentary luncheon is served at the end of the parade route at the National Guard Armory at the Gold Country Fairgrounds. All participants and spectators are invited to join us on this day of celebration and remembrance. A ?Proud To Be An American? celebration is held at the Armory following the luncheon. There is music, clapping and singing. Thanks to all those who join in the celebration and the salute! Court Bradbury, adjutant, American Legion Post 84, Auburn
