Letters to the Editor

A special day

All of us at the Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum extend our hearty thanks to the members of the community who visited the museum on Memorial Day to see our touching tribute to POWs and MIAs, to the local businesses who donated food and flowers for our guests and to those businesses that donated gift certificates and products for door prizes.

More than 200 visitors came to the museum on May 26, more than have ever visited in one day since we opened our doors in 2002. Families from all over the Central Coast and California stopped by to honor our veterans, as did guests from other states and one visitor from Colombia.

A big thank you to all who made this a special day for veterans — to The Tribune, KCOY and KJUG, who helped get the message out, and the many businesses that allowed us to post fliers about our special hours. Most of all, we’re grateful to our media specialist Sarah Twisselman.

Although Memorial Day has passed, the White Table of Remembrance is still on display at the Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum at 801 Grand Ave. in San Luis Obispo, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
