On March 25, 2018 the Mariposa Yosemite Club honored veterans from Mariposa County. Over 240 veterans joined us for an afternoon of recognition and fellowship. Our featured speaker was LT. GEN. Michael A. Vane, US Army, RET. with a special guest appearance by Congressman Tom McClintock.
WW2 veteran Ralph Seely and Korean War veteran Fred Wackerman were two veterans honored and each presented with a Quilt of Valor from the Mariposa Piecemakers Quilting Group. It was a wonderful afternoon spent honoring our veterans and of fellowship.
The major event sponsors were Sierra Tel, Pioneer Market, and Steve’s Sportsmans Café. Other sponsors included VFW Post 6042-Mariposa, American Legion Post #567 and Foster ACE Hardware.
The event was spearheaded by 2017 - 2018 President Ophelia McInturff with much help from her committee of Veterans and Rotarians!
