The Crockett Museum always serves as our community’s gathering place on Memorial Day. This year, Memorial Day is on Monday, May 30th (it is always the last Monday in May). The Museum will open at 11 o’clock for coffee, refreshments, and a short patriotic program honoring the men and women who died serving our country. It will also be the official opening of a new exhibit- one honoring a group of men serving in the 211th Coast Artillery unit during WWII (protecting the Mare Island Naval Shipyard and partially stationed in Crockett). The exhibit is called, “We Just Called ’em ‘the Boston Boys.’” Vallejo resident and author Gary Cullen will stop by that day and sign copies of his new book on the same subject (“The Boys From Boston” is about the men of the 211th, as well, but he concentrates on the Vallejo side of the Strait!). Music will play at Rithet Park from 1-3pm.
For more information about the events listed below or any other items, please call the Museum (787-2178) during open hours or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Event dates are subject to change; come on in and explore the various exhibits on Crockett area history and C&H Sugar Co. on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.
