I had the honor and privilege to witness the City of Auburn observe Memorial Day 2013. Auburn area veterans and residents turned out in spite of the sprinkles on Monday to observe Memorial Day beginning at 9 AM at the New Auburn Cemetery.
You can see a video of the festivities here: http://youtu.be/nQpFf20DAuc
Congressmen Tom McClintock announced during his address that thanks to volunteer efforts the flag that flies over the war memorial at the New Auburn Cemetery will now be illuminated.
Congressman McClintock then donated a flag to the New Auburn Cemetery that flew of our nation’s capital. Festivities continued at the Old Auburn Cemetery, the Newcastle Cemetery and in Roseville at the Placer County Courts where a new Vietnam Memorial has been dedicated and the Maidu Indian Cemetery.
