It has been a while since I have updated you. The Birthday Ball was held on 6 November at Clark Plantation. The venue was well decorated and our guests were treated to great food and excellent music from Crooked Counsel. Of course our ceremony was special. Thanks to Dennis Wait for stepping up in the unavoidable absence of our expert MC, Sandra Torres Pintos. Our ceremonial unit was excellent. We had raffle winners and lots of dancing.
MARINE OF THE YEAR - we made two presentations at this event. The Marine of the Year for 2020 was Junior Vice Commandant Matt Yakubsin, who put together the birthday celebration in 2020 at the High Springs Brewery and lined up future events there.
The 2021 Marine of the Year was presented to Adjutant/Paymaster Jim Hutto. He has been instrumental in getting a lot of things done this year and volunteers to help everyone. He also volunteers regularly at the VA driving a golf cart for those who need help getting to their cars or across the campus to another building.
As soon as we get the links to the photos from this event, we'll get that posted.
