Thanks to those who have served

Thanks to those who have served, including my father Joe Pelline, my wife’s dad James Durkin, Shannon’s Uncle Gordon, our neighbor and district Supervisor Nate Beason, our friend Jim Pyle, the late Daniel Durgin, and others.

We are proud to have donated money for a seat in the Grass Valley Veterans Memorial building honoring Shannon’s Uncle Gordon, thanks to a program of The Center for the Arts. It reads: “Army Staff Sergeant Gordon Cech, WWII, Purple Heart.” There are 483 such seats.
