July 28th
 Our Annual Picnic is just 2 weeks away on July 28th. It is back at Illiniwek Park Pavilion in Hampton, Illinois. The Picnic starts at Noon, with chow being served at 1300 hrs. By popular demand the Detachment providing Big Butts BBQ again this year, please remember to bring a side dish to share with the rest of the picnic goers. Also remember to bring your own drinks. Unfortunately I will not be able to make this event, but please let me know by July 20th if you will be attending. By letting me know how many will be attending just helps us a rough idea how many servings of meat to purchase so me are not over spending. Please feel free to invite other Marines or any potential members. Please let me know if you have any questions. Our monthly membership meeting will be conducted at the picnic.
