The Yolo County Bar Association will commemorate the right to vote and the longevity of its active members at this year’s “Law Day” celebration on Wednesday. The event will begin at noon at the United Methodist Church, 620 North St. in Woodland. A catered lunch will be provided at a cost of $25 per person.
The theme of this year’s Law Day, as determined by the American Bar Association, is “American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters.” The Bar has invited Yolo County Clerk/Recorder Freddie Oakley, who oversees the county’s elections office, to inform local attorneys, judges, and guests about this topic.
In addition, the Bar will hand out its first “Milestone Awards,” recognizing Yolo County attorneys who have been practicing for more than 45 years, and remain active members of the Bar. Recipients include Bill Donovan, Roger Gambatese, Charles Mack and J. Toney.
The Yolo County Bar Association is a nonprofit organization made up of local attorneys and judges. For more information, or to join the Bar, visit www.yolobar.com.
