The California World War One Centennial Task Force cordially invites you to commemorate the hundred-year anniversary of the Armistice ending the Great War. Presenters at the event will showcase period newspaper articles and text from those engaged in the war effort. Music from the era will also be performed! Please help us in honoring our WWI Veterans’ memory – we shall never forget their bravery and sacrifices for our nation.

The California World War One Centennial Task Force is a completely volunteer-led effort of scholars, historians, and citizens who feel it’s important to remember the Forgotten Generation of WWI and to remember the lessons that we can learn from a century ago.
