Davis’ annual Veterans Day ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. Monday at the Davis Cemetery, 820 Pole Line. Community members are invited to honor our nation’s veterans at this free event.

Yolo County Supervisor Mike McGowan, a lifelong resident of West Sacramento who served in the U.S. Marines during the Vietnam War, will be the keynote speaker. McGowan later graduated from Sacramento State University and McGeorge School of Law and worked as an attorney in private practice from 1977 to 1996.

He announced this week that he will step down from the Board of Supervisors in December to take an appointed position with the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Gov. Jerry Brown announced McGowan’s appointment on Tuesday as deputy director of strategic planning and policy for the DMV.

Also speaking at Monday’s ceremony are Francis Resta of Davis, a World War II veteran who is a former commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6949, and state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis.

The Davis High Madrigal Singers will perform a musical tribute to veterans and their families and members of the Davis Professional Firefighters Association No. 3494 will provide a barbecue lunch following the ceremony.

Monday evening also will offer an opportunity for the community to say thanks to veterans as well as their families.

The Davis Graduate will host a barbecue to benefit Yolo Military Families’ “Hugs From Home” program, which sends care packages to local military personnel who are deployed around the globe.

The dinner will run from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday on the patio at The Graduate, 805 Russell Blvd. in the University Mall. It is co-sponsored by The Davis Graduate and the Sunset Rotary Club of Davis.

Tickets are $13 general and $7 for children under 11. Proceeds will cover postage to send the “Hugs From Home” to their recipients.

For advance ticket purchases or more information, email yolomilitaryfamilies@gmail.com.

Monday is the observed holiday for Veterans Day, and schools, banks and the post office will be closed.
