A Pearl Harbor remembrance and wreath-laying ceremony is scheduled at 9 a.m. Friday at Discovery Park, at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers.
The event is presented by the USS Holland SS-1 Gold Country Base, United States Submarine Veterans, to honor and remember those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.
Yolo County Sheriff Ed Prieto will speak at the remembrance. Sacramento and Yolo counties marine division patrol boats will assist in the wreath- laying.
In addition, honor guards from the Civil Air Patrol Squadron 14 and the Naval ROTC Unit from Soledad High School in Monterey County will participate in the ceremony.
In 1994, Congress designated Dec. 7 as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
