July 15, 2017

For the past 7 years the Marine Corps League has been positioned, and is widely recognized, as the the organization that serves this facility and sponsors the Fly-In. The event itself is hosted by the River City Remote Controlled Model Aircraft Flying Club.
Over the years it has been a struggle to get enough volunteers to escort residents to the Fly-In. Too few volunteers always have to make several trips to various Wards in 3 different buildings to get everyone out onto the field before the event starts.
THIS YEAR, FOR THE FIRST TIME, there is an opportunity to have enough beef to meet the demand! Please attend the Department Staff meeting starting at 10:00 in building 455 Recreation Hall. All league members are invited. The meeting must end by 12:00 when lunch will be served nearby in the main dining room. The cost for lunch is $7.50 but must be paid in advance by June 30. After lunch, at 12:30 I will directed you to the either the 2nd or 3rd floor in building 401, 402, or 403. Once on the floor, escorts will stand by, ready to be assigned a resident by the VA staff. Residents will be tagged for either ice cream or sherbet depending on diet.
Make lunch checks payable to MCL Detachment 1363 and send to P.O. Box 641 Black River Falls, Wi 54615.  Maps will be returned and available on site. If you get lost go to the Police Department in building 407.
Please make every effort to attend the meeting and escort residents to the Fly In that begins in front of building 406 at 1:00. The event will last until 3:00, but depending on the weather, your resident may want to return to his/her room a tad earlier.

Marines Wanted

Our Detachment is looking for Marines in Northeast Wisconsin who would like to reconnect with fellow Marine veterans in the area. We are also looking to grow our Detachment so that we can do more to help out our fellow veterans. Our Detachment has a lot to offer to our fellow veterans including community events, fundraising, assist local veterans in need, and build on our camaraderie and brotherhood. Please come to one of our monthly meetings or if you see a red garrison cover in the community, please stop over. We would love to hear from you.
