Livermore in Alameda County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
This monument symbolizes patriotism and dedication to our country. The ranching, farming and cowboy communities, along with other men and women living in the Murray and Pleasanton Townships have long answered their country's "call to arms." Their valor was demonstrated in WWI and continued with each war, police action and conflict that followed.
These same men and women pulled together and put on the first Livermore Rodeo in 1918. This was their contribution for the tax levied by the U.S Government to pay for Red Cross assistance in WWI.
For the past 100 years and to this day, the Livermore Rodeo still stand tall in providing support to our veterans and non-profit organizations in this valley.
