Concord resident Kathleen Farley, state chair of the Sons and Daughters of Pearl Harbor Survivors, is among the dedicated family members who have "stepped up to make sure they get the recognition they so rightly deserve," including participating in the historically well attended official tree lighting event at Todos Santos Plaza.
"We're delighted to have some of our survivors around," says outgoing Concord Mayor Dan Helix, who will be there when they plug in the lights and who credits staff for "giving it that Christmassy feel."
There will be the traditional complementary horse and buggy rides in Clayton, where the public can feast on doughnuts and hot cider in front of Clayton Community Church.
