DEDICATION OF THE LARGEST MEMORIAL IN THE NATION
HONORING CESAR E. CHAVEZ

The City of San Fernando will hold the dedication of the Csar E. Chvez Memorial on Friday, October 22, 2004, at 6:00 pm at the corner of Wolfskill Street and Truman Street in the City of San Fernando. The Memorial is the largest and most intricate monument in the Nation that honors the great civil rights and labor leader, Csar E. Chvez. The Memorial consists of a fountain, a bronze sculpture of Chvez, a sculpture of ten farm workers, and a 100 foot mural, placed in a 23,000 square foot park-like setting that together educates and provides an opportunity for reflection on the significance of Chvez's life. The site also includes a donors circle with engraved bricks and plaques from the many groups and individuals who have supported the construction of the Memorial. The Memorial was designed by Ignacio Gomez, a local community artist.
