Whisper-MCM.jpg

As we shelter in place, many of us are doing our best to “make lemonade,” tackling home projects, getting back to hobbies we’ve missed, or embarking on new learning adventures. A 95-year-old we know has become a whiz at Zoom so she can see her great grandchildren. How about you? What are you doing to stay sane, entertained, productive, and socially connected?

New Members: Another Great Idea for Gift Certificates

GiftCertificate.jpg

At the beginning of March, we launched our 2020 Membership Drive, with a goal of 250 new members by 30 June. While many things have changed, one has not: the outstanding longterm value of a Marines’ Memorial membership. Consider helping a veteran you know to make the decision to join by gifting them their first year of membership! Gift certificates are available now by phone, and an online purchase option is coming soon.

Buying a gift certificate for a Hotel Stay in the future is also a great way to feed your optimism for better times ahead. Likewise for booking a future hotel stay. We understand the situation is fluid and we will be flexible with any needed reservation changes.
