We at Pajaro Valley Historical Association would like to thank all of the people who came out to our exhibition of military uniforms last Saturday for Veterans Day. And of course, we want to extend our appreciation for all of the men and women who have honorably served in the United States armed forces, past and present.
If you missed the event last weekend, or would like to take another look, you can still come by and visit the Archive this week to see some of the uniform displays. We will be open this week Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:00am to 3:00pm.
