Proclaiming April 6, 2017 through November 11, 2018 a Period to Recognize
and Honor Yolo County’s Service in World War I
WHEREAS, a hundred years ago the United States of America entered the catastrophic
event known as the Great War, which was to place Yolo County on a war footing and was to
impact and change the lives of all 14,000 residents of the County; and
WHEREAS, it is important to remember the very significant role that Yolo County played in
the agricultural efforts and developments that were needed to ensure the Army and the
starving of Europe were fed; and
WHEREAS, we should also acknowledge all the citizens of the county who dedicated
themselves tirelessly to providing support for the war effort and succor to the troops; and
WHEREAS, we must never forget the 200 men from Yolo who volunteered and joined the
armed services on their own volition, including the members of Yolo County’s Company F of
the National Guard; and
WHEREAS, it is right and proper that we also recognize the nearly 700 young men who
were selected by Yolo County to serve in the National Army and to “carry on their shoulders
the cause of humanity and democracy”; and
WHEREAS, we must never forget the over thirty young men who made the supreme
sacrifice and gave their lives for county and country; and
WHEREAS, by honoring those who fought and gave their lives a hundred years ago we
honor all those from Yolo County who have ever served their country and let them know
that we will never forget; and
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Yolo County Board of Supervisors declare
April 6, 2017 to November 11, 2018 as a period to commemorate the Great War; and to call
on veteran’s groups, churches, schools, clubs and organizations, newspapers, media
outlets, and residents of the county to set aside time during this period to recognize and
honor all those who served, and in particular to gather at 11:00 am, Saturday, November
11, 2018 on the steps of the Yolo County Court House to commemorate all those that made
the ultimate sacrifice.
