Since it is the 50th anniversary of Cornish Christmas this year, we thought we would try to do something special. With the help of GV Fire, we put some lights on a 100 foot tall Redwood Tree in front of our Police Department. We found out it is tough to decorate a tree that tall! Thank you Grass Valley Fire for the help.

Congratulations to Corporal Jesse Cloyd and Officer Mel Bird who were awarded a Life Saving medal at last night’s city council meeting. This last summer, Jesse and Mel heroically intervened when a distraught young man attempted to jump from the Empire Street freeway overpass.

On this Veterans Day, THANK YOU to active duty military members and to those who have served! Veterans Day is always November 11, despite the fact that for business purposes it was “observed” yesterday. Some Veterans Day history: Veterans Day coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect “To us in America the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with - solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service, and with gratitude for the victory [, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.” -President Woodrow Wilson, November 11, 1919 In 1945, World War II veteran Raymond Weeks from Birmingham, Alabama, had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who died in World War I. Weeks led a delegation to Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, who supported the idea of National Veterans Day. U.S. Representative Ed Rees from Emporia, Kansas, presented a bill establishing the holiday through Congress. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, also from Kansas, signed the bill into law on May 26, 1954. Congress amended the bill on June 1, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with "Veterans," and it has been known as Veterans Day since.

Here's some old GVPD photos. How ‘bout those uniforms?
