TULARE – Veterans will be honored and able to learn about services available to them during a first-time Veterans Appreciation Day at the Tulare County Fair, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14.

Local quilters are creating quilts to be presented to veterans on stage at noon on Veterans Appreciation Day. To nominate a veteran to receive a custom-designed quilt, visit www.tcfair.org. The nomination is due by Sept. 1.
