On June 6, 2010, the 66th anniversary of D-Day, Sunriver Resort is extremely honored to host a group of WWII veterans as they gather for the official designation of the WORLD WAR II VETERANS HISTORIC HIGHWAY - 325 miles of Highway 97 and a portion of State Route 126.
The Highway will be designated by 19 signs installed near 8 WWII training sites, including Sunriver, which during WWII was a 5,500 acre combat and engineer replacement training center called Camp Abbot.
The 2pm ceremony will take place in the historic Great Hall, the original officers' mess hall that was built in 1944 by the Army Corps of Engineers. The public is invited to attend.
Thank you to all Oregon WWII vets for your service and sacrifice.
