Fellow Marines and Associates,
Here's to hoping this finds all are well and coping with the everyday hassles that the COVID-19 has imposed on us.
The meeting we had in July was a good one and we discussed a few upcoming events
that needed addressed. Unfortunately, the Wreaths Across American luncheon had to be postponed until August. It
will be held even if it means doing takeout and the bake sale and auction inside. Such are the times we live in today.
Another topic was the Marine Corps Ball in November. If things are still as they are, which I think they will be, we won’t be having a formal ball, so we will be making alternate plans just
in case. The restrictions are too limiting to have an all out shindig like we are used to. There was a proposal to have an
informal gathering at the Legion Pavilion. My thoughts are that since we didn’t have a picnic and probably not a ball,
is that we combine the two. Being in November, it might be a little chilly, but I believe we can have a picnic/ball at the
pavilion, you would just have to dress accordingly. Provisions will be made to make it as comfortable as possible, nothing
fancy. More will be discussed at the August meeting, which will be held at the Legion pavilion also. I will make sure we have
the restrooms open and that the lights will be on. We will keep it short and try to get things settled on the important issues
The meeting will be the same time as usual, 1930
hours on August 27th, with the
Officers Meeting on August 24th at 1800 hours. I was pleased with the turnout
for the meeting with the circumstances being what they were. Please remember
to check your emails and the Detachment website for the latest information on
meetings. Also, make sure that your email address is up to date so you don’t
miss any information. If you know someone who doesn’t use email or the
internet, make sure to contact them and let them know what’s going on.
