Grass Valley, California 25 June 2017: The Northern Recon Group supports a veteran’s memorial at the Veteran's Memorial Park in Grass Valley.

Contact Kenny at 530-292-4213.
 
Yuba City, California 28 June to 4 July 2017: The Northern Recon Group Supports Yuba Sutter Area California Highway Patrol Squad Club. We will be occupying a small part of this lot. We will have a travel trailer on-site, so someone can watch over the area at night, and a fireworks booth. There are elevated structures, for vehicles, and it's very visible to highway 99. We wanted to see if you guys wanted to join the fun and bring some of your classic military vehicles to show off. We figured it will be mutually beneficial because we would benefit from the additional traffic, and you guys can get some positive exposure. The site is completely fenced off and we will plan on having Officers there 24-7. If you have any questions, feel free to call Jeff Heggstrom (530)218-8496
