May 29, 2017 - Thank you to Colleen Diltz for taking wonderful pictures during the Memorial Day Service at Shafter Cemetery.
Following my address to the attendees, I had the opportunity to meet with friends from my hometown (pictured above) and meet All-American Drum Major Timothy Martinez of Shafter (pictured bottom left) who played taps at the Memorial Day Service.
Timothy is an accomplished musician who has traveled around the United States as a member of the Bakersfield College Golden Empire Drum and Bugle Corp. He earned the Kern County Best Drum Major recognition while at Shafter High School. And, he represented Shafter High School as an All-American Drum Major at London’s 2017 New Year’s Day Parade.
