Our monthly breakfast get-together's are always the first Saturday of each month, unless something comes up to change that, and is always a good time to come together and catch up while enjoying a good breakfast with friends. Many members look forward to this time monthly and some bring family members along. Space is always an issue wherever we go, so please keep that in mind. Come join us whether you are young or old, new to the detachment or been around since the beginning. We are all Marines and friends of Marines. Semper Fidelis (Marine Corps' Motto, meaning Always Faithful)!!
This Officer's Staff meeting is conducted monthly on the third Monday of every month, the week prior to the Monthly membership meeting held on the last Thursday of every month. The Officer's Staff meeting allows the Officers to discuss certain matters pertaining to the membership and running of this nonprofit corporation, and allows the Officers to create the agenda for the Monthly membership meeting the next week. This meeting is open to all members; however, the Officers are the only ones that have a vote at this meeting session.
The Monthly Membership meeting is how the Detachment conducts business throughout the year. This is where every members' voice is heard and votes are counted. Everyone has equal say and anyone can bring an item up for discussion/decision. These meetings are how we get things done and are able to keep all members informed of what is going on in the Detachment. The Commandant is able to ensure that initiatives to propel the Detachment forward into the future are planned and organized for the best results possible. Committees are the worker bees making things happen and bringing those work results back to the membership monthly while everyone present is able to stay informed as stakeholders in this nonprofit corporation. Visitors are welcome; however, it is recommended to reach out to the Detachment through the Contact page to ensure that there won't be any reason why you may not be able to attend. Visitors and Guests are subject to removal from the meeting room at anytime at the Commandants discretion based on what is being discussed.
