THANK YOU! What a Veterans Day Celebration!

The morning was a bit crisp but perfect for running our 5K Run / 1 Mile walk went off perfectly with sunny skies and great temps for being outside running, maybe not so great for those keeping us safe by blowing leaves off the parking lot, (Thank you Mike!) or cheering the runners on, but afterwards everyone was treated to a delicious breakfast thanks to Blueplate! Wonderful job putting that all together, your support is greatly appreciated, as well as those of all our sponsors and participants.

Then there was rain and it got a bit colder and the concert was definitely to be held inside. This did not stop anyone from having a great time. Love Alive played another great concert at the American Legion and our special guest Death of the Fox had some craft beer available and Dominic’s Food Truck was on site as well keeping everyone full and ready to dance. A great night was had by all. We thank everyone who came out to support us, we look forward to seeing you at our future events. Check out our events calendar or follow us on Facebook for the latest.

Veterans Day

Veterans Day is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served. For one day, we stand united in respect for you, our veterans.

This holiday started as a day to reflect upon the heroism of those who died in our country’s service and was originally called Armistice Day. It fell on Nov. 11 because that is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. However, in 1954, the holiday was changed to “Veterans Day” in order to account for all veterans in all wars.

We celebrate and honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Marine Corps celebrates 246th birthday

November 10 marks the Marine Corps’ official birthday as it was first established on this day in 1775, by the Second Continental Congress.

The Marines played a large role in the American Revolution after its creation but then were abolished following the Treaty of Paris in 1783. The organization was then recreated on July 11, 1798, by U.S. Congress, which then directed that it be available for service under the Secretary of the Navy.

Now there are over 35 Marine Corps bases across the world, with a majority of them in the United States. Its structure is similar to the Army with teams, squadrons, platoons and battalions. There are over 186,000 active Marines.

Regarding the organization’s, birthday, it was first known as Marine Corps Day and was initially celebrated on July 11 from 1799 until 1921. This was when Major General Lejeune ordered to formalize the tradition and establish the official day to honor the birthday of the Marine Corps.
