From the Commandant:The December meeting was held as scheduled with 18 members in attendance. After an abbreviated opening and a brief report on the status of the Toys for Tots campaign, the normal order of business was suspended to recognize three brothers who have recently been awarded the rank of Eagle Scout. Dave Berry and Al Schiff coordinated the presentation with the boys parents in attendance. Following the presentation, meeting attendees adjourned to enjoy a meal and camaraderie in preparation for the upcoming Christmas holiday.
We have again been successful in assisting the Toys for Tots Campaign in their mission to provide Christmas presents for children in need. We appreciate the efforts of the detachment members who have contributed to this effort. We also commend Chip Fagan and Richard Douglas for coordinating the activity and keeping all apprised of the logistics and progress. Once again, the Marines have landed and the situation is well in hand.
On behalf of the detachment leadership, I wish all a happy and safe holiday and a prosperous and healthy new year.
