Imperial Beach pays Tribute to Vets and active Military with their "Military Day" held last Sunday in Imperial Beach. Community,Volunteers helped make the Event a huge Success!


In speaking with josie Hamada, I wa told that the Imperial Beach Women's Club was able to make about 100 "Thank you" cards for our Military Veterans. The IBWC had a booth where children could color and use other supplies to make the Thank you cards for the veterans. After the event, the cards were collected and taken to a.facility that helped returning veterans on Pacific Highway in San Diego that had 130 beds to house veterans..
"The event was awesome! Thank all those who made it happen. My father was US Navy for 
 29 years. The young man Sgt James Treber on fallen wall was my son's best friend and my grandson named after him. Was special that he & other's honored.". Said Sha-Ron Cobb regarding the event,
As always, the IB Posse came through with an awesome sandcastle that paid tribute to all branches of the military day.
