The Kiwanis Club of Los Gatos is inviting the public to attend the dedication of a new flagpole by the bandstand in Oak Meadow Park to at 9 a.m., Wednesday, July 4.
As part of the town’s 125th Jubilee Year celebration, the Kiwanis Club will also hoist a 20-by-30-foot American flag, the club said in a written press release.
Dubois, a past lieutenant governor of Kiwanis, was tireless in support of many civic projects in Los Gatos, in particular the construction of the bandstand next to the 70-foot-tall flagpole, according to the release.
Dubois died last February at the age of 69 and is survived by his wife, Mary Tomasi-Dubois, who is also a Kiwanis Club member.
The effort is spearheaded by Los Gatos Councilmember Steven Leonardis, a member of the Kiwanis Club along with councilmember and former mayor Joe Pirzynski and Santa Clara County Supervisor Mike Wasserman, the release said.
Leonardis worked with town staff and former councilmember and past Kiwanis president MarLyn Rasmussen to rescue the flagpole from the old Honda dealership on Los Gatos Boulevard.
