Honoring Our Veterans Display

by Ana Castro

On Saturday, 30th of September, CVGS and the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library will sponsor the second annual Family History Day. We will be inviting the community to join us to learn more about genealogy. The day is planned with activities for all ages, and opportunities to receive support on your personal research.

In addition we will have a special “Honoring Our Veterans” display for our CVGS members. Here is what to do for honoring your family veteran.

1. Write an overview, 200-250 words, use a font of 14, single spaced, on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper.

2. Tell us about their experiences or an event while in service.

3. Use their name, branch of service, rank, date of event and family connection.

4. On a separate page (8 ½-11) copy a photograph of veteran (no originals please).

5. Type or write your Name at the bottom right hand side of both papers.

Your photo and written overview will be posted on a display board at the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library on September 30 for visitors to read and enjoy. Join us in honoring our family veterans.

The due date for submittal of the work is August 30, Wednesday at the CVGS General Meeting.

Please give your work to Ana Castro. All work will be glued to display boards. The essays and photos submitted will not be returned. Please submit only copies.
