Turlock Mayor Amy Bublak addresses those in attendance at the City’s annual Veterans Day celebration on Wednesday, which was held at the Go Drive-In Turlock location adjacent to the fairgrounds due to COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. All members of U.S. military service were honored during the event, as community members showed their support from their vehicles.
Featured speaker retired U.S. Marine and Turlock High School JROTC Senior Naval Science Instructor Major Kelly Cross thanked the community for recognizing veterans and challenged the audience to be “part of the solution, not part of the problem” as everyone deals with the hardships seen in 2020.
“The darkness is easy…it’s easy; it’s hard to see the light, follow the light. You’ve got to focus on something; you’ve got to have a goal. That goal can be the betterment of your neighborhood, the betterment of your city, your state…Find your reason, find your passion and find yourself,” said Cross.
