There will be a lot going on as we bring 2021 to an end. At noon on November 11, 2021, the Lions Club will be hosting a flag retirement ceremony at noon at La Placita Liberty Park. Please drop off any flags that need to be retired to the post office or the Sonora Chamber of Commerce. The community is invited to attend this great event.

That evening will be a night of shopping with Ladies Night Out. This gives time to search for those great Christmas gifts and also allows you to support our local businesses. It will begin at 5:00 p.m. and end around 9:00 p.m. that evening so ladies let’s do some shopping. If you need a list of who is participating, look for the flyers that will be posted in those businesses or you may stop by the chamber and pick up a list.
