Honoring our Veterans and Saluting our Troops

Twilight Concert and Picnic featuring David Martin & Rob Russ The Big Band of Rossmoor

Please join the Rotary Club of Lafayette on July 13, 2019 at the tranquil waters of the Lafayette Reservoir. Show support for our active military, reserves, veterans and Gold Star Families who have lost their loved ones who served bravely for our country.

This is a wonderful opportunity to meet active members of the military, reserves, veterans and families of our Fallen Heroes. These families are our neighbors. Our children grew up together. Let’s hear their stories and ensure they know our gratitude for those who are serving and those who paid the ultimate price. Meet representatives from the Veteran’s Center who support our returning veterans.

Please wear your uniform. Blue Star and Gold Star Families and our community would like to meet you.

We will pay special tribute to our Gold Star Families and Blue Star Moms. Joining us will be Blue Star Moms Chapter 101, Danville and the Contra Costa Blue Star Moms, Chapter 20, Concord.
