2010 MCL Utah Department Convention Success!

What a great weekend!  Awesome convention venue (in spite of temps reaching 107 on Saturday), great new Department staff, our own squared away Color Guard posting the colors, interesting guest speakers, awesome food by Chef Jon Braaten of the Abbey Inn and a great time meeting other Marines and spouses and auxiliary members.  Here are some of the photos from the weekend.

Utah Department Marine of the Year Massey

Our own Rick Massey, became the 4th Marine of the Year for the Utah State Department, Marine Corps League, for his tireless and so very successful Toys for Tots accomplishments.  Here is Gunny Massey with MOTY 2009-2010 Bill Toole and MOTY 2008-2009 Ben Setter.  Congratulations, Gunny Massey!
