Veterans Day Ceremony and 7th Annual Softball Tournament

Veterans Day Flyer

This Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, the County Veterans Services Office, in partnership with the City of Concord, will be hosting its 7th Annual Veterans Day Invitational Softball Tournament at Willow Pass Park (2748 E. Olivera Road at Salvio Street).

This free tournament brings together veterans and active duty military to provide a unique way to honor their military service and help participants connect with fellow veterans and the community. Participating teams include veterans and active duty men and women representing every branch of the military.

The County Veterans Services Office coordinates their event with the Concord Veterans Day Ceremony, organized by VFW Post 1525 in partnership with the City’s Parks & Recreation and Public Works departments. This allows them to bring together veterans of all generations and creates one of the larger Veterans Day ceremonies in the East Bay region.

The Veterans Day Ceremony, also in Willow Pass Park, will begin at 11:00 a.m. and, immediately following, the tournament will begin with a ceremonial first pitch thrown out by Concord City Councilman Dominic Aliano. All are welcome to attend.

For more information, please visit www.teamsideline.com/concord. Interested teams may contact Nathan Johnson for information about registration: nathan@vs.ccounty.us or (925) 313-1481.

 For more information about tournament sponsorship opportunities please contact Ryan Rector at (925) 813-5188 or ryan01.vrp@outlook.com and Noga Welner-Kessler nogaw@hospiceeastbay.org for volunteer inquiries.
