October 25, 2023
Riverside, CA – In solidarity with the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers (NACVSO), Supervisors Karen Spiegel and Chuck Washington proudly announce Riverside County's participation in Operation Green Light for Veterans at a ceremonial light switch event on November 7 at 5:30 p.m. in front of the County Administration Center Building (4080 Lemon St. Riverside, CA, 92502).
Riverside County is honored to stand alongside the nation's 3,069 counties, parishes, and boroughs in Operation Green Light. The County Administration Building will remain lit in green from November 7 through November 12, culminating in the commemoration of Veterans Day on November 11.
“As a veteran, I understand what it means to put service above self,” says Third District Supervisor Chuck Washington. “While we light up our administrative center in green, we are illustrating that Riverside County is dedicated to ensuring that our veterans are seen, appreciated, and supported.”
"Our commitment to our veterans is unwavering. This gesture, simple but significant, is our way of saying thank you for their immense sacrifices," says Supervisor Karen Spiegel. "We are proud to light up our administration building in green as a symbol of our ongoing support and recognition of their service."
The ceremony is open to all veterans, community members, media representatives, and local dignitaries. All attendees will get a firsthand look at the green light ceremony and have an opportunity to hear from key community leaders about what Operation Green Light for Veterans means to them.
