Plethora of local memorials honors fallen soldiers, seafarers

Memorial Day is a time to remember.

But in Del Norte County, there are plenty of memorials — honoring soldiers and those who died at sea — that can spur memories of the departed year-round.

There’s even a memorial in downtown Crescent City honoring the 11 people who died in Del Norte County in the 1964 tsunami.

Originally, Memorial Day was created to honor those who died in war, but for some it has become a time to remember other departed loved ones as well.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed May 5, 1868, by Gen. John Logan, a Union general who later became a senator. The holiday was first observed 25 days later on May 30.

Uncharted Shores Academy held its second annual auction fundraiser recently at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds.  

This year we added a soup supper and country store to add extra fun to the evening. The dinner was an all-you-can-eat soup bar, featuring seven types of soup, rolls, muffins and beverages. Over 60 local businesses donated services or merchandise that was sold to the highest bidder. The auction was a huge success!  

The USA Parent Club, who sponsored the event, donated over $4,000 to the students of Uncharted Shores to use for educational field trips and supplies.

Helping out Anthony

Enoteca was the place to be April 25 as people rallied to support 7-year-old Anthony Bookhamer, who was severely burned in an apartment fire Jan. 11 that claimed the life of his mother.

The local band Three for the Road donated its talents for the event. Enoteca owners provided gift baskets, wine and jewelry raffled off during the evening, while staff members graciously put their earnings into the “hat” for Anthony.

Over $1,500 was placed into Anthony’s account at Washington Mutual (Chase Bank).

Then a spaghetti feed fundraiser was held May 6 at Joe Hamilton School’s multipurpose room. Anthony was able to attend the event and was joined by all of the firefighters who rescued him during the fire in January. They distributed 250 smoke alarms that were donated by Home Depot.
