I received a few calls today from residents asking why I didn’t include certain Memorial Day ceremonies or why a lot of information was left out of an entry in today’s “Showing Respect” article — http://www.recordnet.com/article/20150521/NEWS/150529909
I feel bad, but what was listed today were all the events submitted to us by cities and organizations who planned the events. If there’s an event you feel is missing, then whoever is organizing it never sent the Record word it was happening.
As for some things being left out — that was a space issue once again. Sorry, but it happens.
In one case, however, it appears we left out a guest speaker. Why is that? Apparently, this particular event is being put on by American Legion Ed Stewart Post 803, with help from Veterans of Foreign Wars Luneta Post 52. The listing I received was from the latter group, and the guest speaker for Monday’s 8:30 service at MLK park in Stockton, was not mentioned in said listing.
Nikki from Post 803 let me know that Councilman Moses Zapien will be the guest speaker at the event.
Again, I feel bad, but I only printed what came across my desk. I hope in the future more groups submit their event — no matter what holiday — to email@example.com.
