 WWI Commemoration Ceremony

On Sunday, November 11 at 11:00 a.m. the Tulare County Museum will unveil a display of poppies created by Tulare County's students in honor of the centennial of the end of World War I. The Tulare County Museum has partnered with the Tulare County Office of Education to provide teachers with guiding questions for students and resources such as documentaries, podcasts, art, music, and poetry from this time in history. The museum has also partnered with our local veterans to arrange for them to speak in classrooms with students to really bring this history alive! Along with the unveiling of the poppy display the Central Valley Vietnam Veterans will present their color guard, Mt. Whitney High School band will play patriotic songs, students will recite In Flanders Fields,  our own District Attorney Tim Ward who is a veteran will speak and local veteran Bill Morland will conduct a ceremonial wreath laying. Come join us in commemorating this important part of our history! The event is free and open to the public.
