Hubbard-Baro Memorial regarding our 17th Annual "In their Honor" Memorial Golf Tournament

Date Thursday, November 11
Time: 8 am
Location: Fort Washington Country Club- 10272 N. Millbrook, Fresno
Event Info: 17th Annual Hubbard-Baro Memorial "In their Honor" Memorial Golf Tournament held on Veterans Day, November 11, 2021 at Fort Washington Country Club in Fresno, CA. Funds raised are directly donated to our local VA Hospital here in Fresno, in particular the rehabilitation division. Over a thousand new men and women come to the VA for treatment annually. The tournament originally began in 2005 with a very small field of close friends, in commemoration of Corporal Jeremiah Baro and Lance Corporal Jared Hubbard who were killed in action in 2004. However, the brothers of Jared Hubbard immediately joined the Army to honor their brother. The youngest of the boys, Nathan Hubbard, was killed in action in 2007 leaving the oldest brother Jason no choice but to return home. In consideration of family and sacrifice, the "Hubbard Act" was passed in July of 2008; allowing the sole survivor of families to take Honorably Discharge and return home with full benefits.

Parade floats and participants will be positioned along Main Street between M and G Streets AND the public will have the opportunity to drive thru the event, heading east from M Street toward G Street. This parade format will allow for spacing between parade entries and no direct contact with the public. The public is invited to drive thru the event anytime between 1 and 4 pm. Due to street closures along Main Street, the public may enter the parade route at R Street and M Street.
