Public Invited To Mark 1 Year Anniversary Of Vet's Home

The state-run veterans home on Knighton Road in Redding will mark their one year anniversary this Saturday. Local politicians and veterans groups fought hard to secure funding for the home, which opened its doors on October 25th of last year. The 88-Million Dollar facility will eventually house 155 residents and employ 270 staff members. The community is invited to celebrate the first year of opening with greetings, tours, games, and a barbeque. Also, the Northern California Veterans Museum will be placing a time capsule. The Founders Day Celebration is Saturday from 11AM to 2PM.
