Updated for November
Its that time of the year and Veterans appreciation week is coming up, we are going to have a mandatory drill day on the 11th of November. We will have multiple events going on and you will need to attend in order to earn your Veterans appreciation ribbon. To make things easy we will have all mandatory events held on the 11th. At 0900 we will be meeting at the elks lodge. Be dressed in jeans and unit tee. All YM will be required to bring a filled out thank you card that we will be sending to the local Veterans. Also, create a poster board thanking Veterans for their service. Pick up will be at 1200.
Please return at 1530 in full uniform for the evening events. The evening of the 11th the YM’s will be assisting the Marine Corps League with the 242nd annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball. All young marines that participate in the evening events will receive a special gift from the Marine Corps League. Make sure your uniform is in pristine condition because there will be an inspection by a retired U.S Marine Corps Master Sergeant. Pick up following the evening events will be at 1900. Please RSVP Mr. Sousa via email at randysousa83@gamil or by phone at 707-495-6348 by no later than November 6th, 1700. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
