Gone but not forgotten

Hours after hundreds of visitors left Pioneer Park for the morning large-scale dedication event, a smaller group converged at Lucerne Valley Memorial Park.

“It was the end of a great day,” LV Veterans Monument Committee Chair Patti Riddle said afterward.

Several Veterans Committee members were present along with local veterans, OMYA mine manager Peter Sutherland, who donated a large white rock, and Capt. Tom Pinard (ret.) of Wrightwood who served as an invaluable resource for the committee.

The Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association (LVEDA) commends and thanks Patti Riddle and her Lucerne Valley Veterans Monument Committee for an amazing job beautifully done. 

The Memorial Day ceremony was a wonderful experience.  The monuments at the Park and Cemetery are classic.   The Dedication’s booklets are professional.  Everything you have done is a Class Act — a major attribute for our community. 

Getting two county supervisors and our congressman all together is a testament to your good work and perseverance.

On May 26, 2014, the Lucerne Valley Veterans Monument Committee dedicated two monuments in honor of our Country’s veterans. The Committee fundraised tirelessly for sixteen months and proudly placed one monument in Pioneer Park and the other in Lucerne Valley Memorial Park. These monuments will forever stand in reverence and respect for our Country’s military personnel. We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to all who assisted us in our journey:

LUCERNE VALLEY • There was something for just about everyone at last Saturday’s annual High Desert Shooting Fun Fair at the Lions Pride Park and Shooting Range.

Tessie and the Calico Cats got things going as Lions members cooked and served hot dogs, hamburgers and more. But perhaps the most ever brought their families to enjoy the free admission, which included a chance to try out a number of firearms.
