Armed forces commemorated in Clovis

May 31, 2012 by  

On Sunday, May 20, Clovis hosted the Armed Forces Day Concert at the Clovis Veterans Memorial Building located at 453 Hughes Avenue in Clovis, California.

This special concert was being presented to honor the armed forces of the United States of America and featured the magnificent sounds of the AUSA (Association of the United States Army) Military Concert Band performing a concert named “Sounds of Freedom.” As part of this concert, there were be a variety of military displays and patriotic musical scores performed by the “Sound of Freedom” band, as well as appearances from the Design Science High School Color Guard, and Miss Fresno County 2011, Valerie Salcedo.

The Veterans Memorial Building is the focal point of the Clovis community and acts as the central hub for a number of social and civic activities. This building features a gymnasium where a number of dances and wedding receptions have been held and is made available for a number of veterans’ organizations, as well as church functions, service clubs, and the local Chamber of Commerce. The board of directors for the Clovis Memorial Building also offers programs and facilities for the veterans who live within the district. Clovis residents enjoy many other functions hosted in this building.

Print companies were probably hard at work preparing flyer printing and banner printing services to promote this concert to the residents, which was free to attend. It looks like a busy summer ahead in Clovis, with events scheduled on topics from blueberries to beekeeping, meaning that further banner and poster printing is more than likely over the coming months.
