We held a great fund-raiser on Tejon Ranch on August 10th. We hosted just over 80 people, including 14 who were successful bidders on a half-day four-wheel-drive tour of the ranch. Each person that was there indicated that they wanted to join us again next year!
So mark your calendar. We will be replicating that event on Saturday, August 9, 2014! Tentatively the silent auction for a limited number of seats on the tour will be held at the Bakersfield Net Festival in 2014.
Our activity was recognized on the front page of The Bakersfield Californian on Sunday, August 18, 2013. Click here to see the article: BACKCOUNTRY BEAUTY OF TEJON RANCH
Wreath Laying coming up on December 14th, 2013! Please join us.
The Bakersfield National Cemetery Support Committee exists to provide backing to our new Bakersfield National Cemetery, a resting place for our nation’s heroes.
The general membership meets quarterly at the Veterans' Service Center, 1120 Golden State Avenue, Bakersfield, California. Please visit our calendar page for meeting dates and times.
We are a 501c(3) non-profit organization providing volunteers with a unique opportunity to become a part of history as the National Cemetery is built as a Shrine dedicated to our fallen heroes. There are many different committees that a volunteer may be involved in including: Memorial Walkway, Friends of Fallen Heroes, Flags and special programmed events like Memorial Day. If you are interested in watching over our nations heroes, give us a call and together we can honor the veterans who have honored us.
