Chula Vista Celebrates Keep the Spirit of '45 Alive!
 
In partnership with the Keep the Spirit of ’45 Alive! campaign, Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox and Chula Vista Veterans Home Administrator Neal Asper will commemorate the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II and honor local World War II veterans. The event will be held on Saturday, August 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Veterans Home of California-Chula Vista, located at 700 E. Naples Court.

The goal of Keep the Spirit of ’45 Alive!, a year-long campaign, is to inspire a renewed commitment to service and national unity by reminding Americans of how people from all backgrounds came together with a shared sense of community during one of the most difficult times in our nation’s history.

"As Chula Vista prepares to celebrate its Centennial in 2011, it is a time to recognize those who helped shape our community and our veterans played a significant role," said Mayor Cox. "I hope others will take time to learn about the dedication and service of the greatest generation as we look towards the future of Chula Vista and our country."

The Chula Vista Veterans Home will give tribute to the "greatest generation" at this special occasion with live entertainment, displays and exhibits, refreshments and a barbeque lunch. The public is welcome to view the moving collection of first-hand memories of those who experienced August 14, 1945.
