As people throughout the United States prepare to pay tribute to our nation’s veterans this week, AAA of Northern California recommends applying for California state veterans license plates as a great way to honor veterans year-round.
“For just $30 motorists can sign up for plates that will display their support of veterans while helping fund veterans’ hospitals and other services,” said Jenny Mack, AAA Northern California spokesperson.
AAA members can avoid the lines at the DMV by signing up for veterans license plates at any Northern California AAA office that offers DMV services. To find a local AAA office visit http://www.aaa.com or call (800) 922-8228.
When applying for a veterans plate, motorists may choose from more than 100 insignias to appear on the plate. Some of these include the Veterans’ Home of California, California Department of Veterans’ Affairs and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Visit the DMV’s Web site at http://www.dmv.ca.gov to view the complete list of insignias. Take the code of the insignia you want when you go in to register.

Airstream rally this weekend
Members of the Sierra Nevada Airstreamers invite anyone interested to join us for a potluck rally this Friday through Sunday at Lake Lahontan Beach No. 7. You are welcome for any part of that time.
Enjoy our last outing on the road with a congenial group. Find out about winterizing your rig. Exchange information about repairs and maintenance. Take a look inside an Airstream like you always wanted to and fall in love.
Lake Lahontan once covered 8,000 square miles (about 100 A.D.) Now, still a restful place for birdwatching – with luck maybe even a flamingo. There’s also hiking, boating and just relaxing.
