Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall salutes military with Cannon Ball

November 30, 2018

Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, 4141 Fifth Ave., Oakland, will hold its annual fundraising Cannon Ball at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 10.

The evening will begin with a special welcome home for local military service members and veterans from the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts, according to the museum’s website.

Civic leader and decorated Vietnam War veteran Jack Wagner will be honored as “Friend and Patriot of 2018,” the site adds.

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served as the museum’s exhibits “come alive,” providing a look into American history through the artifacts and stories of individuals who served their country.

A formal dinner and ball will follow, including a patriotic performance of military medleys by The Brass Roots, the museum’s ensemble-in-residence.

The evening will include a silent auction and dancing with the Bachelor Boys Band.
