October and November Detachment Meetings

The next detachment meeting will be Saturday October 9th, and the November meeting will be on the first Saturday, November 6.  That's because the Marine Corps Birthday Ball is on the 13th which would have been our meeting date.  Please mark your calendars accordingly.  

Our speaker in October is Pam Curtis who will fill in the blanks as to this year's Toys For Tots.  Valerie King will also come in to talk about Wreaths Across America. If you want to bring any refreshments or snacks to supplement the donuts, please feel free to do so.  The doors open at 0830 and the meeting will start at 9.  See you there - Semper Fi.
