2022 Birthday Ball Planning

30 Dec 2021 11:36 PM | Scott DuPree (Administrator)

I am excited to announce that our 2022 Marine Corps Birthday Ball will have us going back to the Best Western Gateway Grande.  The ball will be on Saturday, November 12, 2022.  Social Hour will start at 5pm and the ceremony will begin at 6pm with dinner and dancing to follow.

Dinner will provide you with a choice of Prime Rib, Herb Roasted Chicken, Herb Crusted Salmon, or a vegan option (which is being selected).  Included with your dinner is salad, rolls, water, coffee, tea and dessert. 

Our Guest of Honor will be Scott Westervelt.  Scott is currently serving as the Commandant of the Department of Florida, Marine Corps League.  Scott served on active duty for 38 years, serving as a Private through Lieutenant Colonel.

We are bringing back the band Crooked Counsel, since they were enjoyed by many in 2020 and 2021.

Seating will be limited to 200 guests.  The hotel will also have a favorable room rate.  Details, including ticket price,  will be published as soon as those details are settled.

Looking forward to an awesome ball.
