Induction of David Beaver as Commandant, Detachment 1175, on June 6th, 2011

Good News: Touching donation to replace stolen goods

Our Marine League Detachment has been featured in a story on WBT TV (local channel CBS). Bob Cole, our past Sr. Vice Commandant, stepped up at a recent meeting and got our detachments attention about stolen property from Habitat for Humanity. We passed the hat and collected $300 to help replace the stolen goods. WBT TV sent a report out to interview Bob and Habitat. It is a great story, not just of Bob and Habitat, but for the whole Marine Corps League and Marines everywhere.
 
I particularly like the quote "A few good men coming to the rescue!"

Here is the link to the story and video, and here is the story below.

Semi-Annual BBQ for September 19th, 2009
 
Our second BBQ of 2009 was once again a success and we are already looking forward to 2010. Hank Robson did the grilling (a.k.a Senior Grill Instructor!), and he had help from numerous volunteers, like George Kafka (Jr. Grill Instructor), Joe Hunter, and Nancy Aubitz.  Once again, the BBQ featured half chickens grilled to perfection using Hanks special sauce, baked beans, slaw, rolls, cake and cupcakes with a special cream cheese filling. They were delicious! Stay tuned for information on our Spring BBQ and for information about the upcoming Marine Corps Birthday Dinner. More details to follow. In the meantime, please view the pictures from our most recent event below.
