AUGUST 2021: WE’RE GROWING!

It’s hard to believe that, in the blink of an eye, summer 2021 will be behind us. These past two months have brought us untold joy as the Marines’ Memorial welcomes more and more of our members through the doors of the Club. We love catching up with you and it’s starting to feel like home again!

 

As more of you return to the Club to stay, eat, learn, and celebrate, we will be able to bring back more employees. And so Club life will spiral up and up until we hit our stride again. Need a nudge? See the new Hotel Special below and lock in your dates now!

 

Meanwhile, we are working to re-energize all of our programs that Commemorate, Educate, and Serve. Your support is always needed and always appreciated! Click here to give onlineThank you!

 

Also of note for August:

> HAPPY 105th BIRTHDAY to the US Marine Corps Reserve!
