Re: Veterans Day November 11, 2018 on Santana Row, San Jose
To all members of the SMSC:
We are all capable of producing exhibits like this. Such exhibits promote our hobby, make the public aware of us, and help to educate them about naval and maritime history. So seek out venues like schools, (Santana Row's) Honor on the Row, Spirit of '45, Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, and the 4th of July. And then post reports on this board. The more, the better!
To Harald: thank you for your kind words.
Like last year, our San Jose Chapter put up a display for the Veterans Day event this year on Santana Row in San Jose. For those of you not familiar with San Jose, Santana Row is like Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.
In my report of the SMSC meeting on November 10, 2018, I had posted photos of the Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941 display. On my photo set below, there are more photos of this display, now outside and with a lot of interested visitors. There was a steady stream of visitors from 2:00 to 6:00PM, and they had a lot of interesting questions about the history behind the display, and also about the models in the display. Our San Jose chapter, Harold, Les, Phil and Don, deserves a big "Thank You" for all their efforts that they put into these displays.
As you will see in my photo album, there were a lot of military vehicles on display, as well as period related cars.
The event was very well attended by both visitors that came out for Veterans Day, and shoppers of Santana Row. https://www.flickr.com/photos/haraldscheel/albums/72157700516086972/with/44113797710/
