Nevada County will celebrate its 2nd Annual Military Appreciation Week from Saturday, November 5th, through Sunday, November 13th.
Military Appreciation Week engages the local community and businesses to honor all active duty, reservists, retired, veterans, and Gold Star Families in the county by providing discounts or special offers. A list of supporting businesses is available at NevadaCountyCA.gov/MilitaryAppreciation.
“We are one of two counties in the United States that has a program like this, and I am grateful for the community involvement and support from local businesses,” said Nevada County Veterans Services Officer David West. “The county has a long history of honoring its veterans, and these businesses participate year-round with discounts for veterans.”
Nevada County sponsored its first annual Military Appreciation Week in November 2021.
Military Appreciation Week is a collaborative effort between the Nevada County Consolidated Veterans Council, Beale AFB, Nevada County Board of Supervisors, The City of Grass Valley, local Chambers of Commerce (Grass Valley, Nevada City, Truckee, and Penn Valley), The Grass Valley Downtown Association, Sierra Harvest, The Nevada County Economic Resource Council, and The Union.
