JANUARY 2023: ALL ABOARD!

Happy New Year! May 2023 bring you good health, good fortune, and great adventures. We look forward to seeing you here at the Club soon!

 

If you’ve read the feature on our busy Banquet Sales and Catering teams in the Winter issue of Crossroadsyou know that your Club’s event spaces are quickly building back to pre-pandemic capacities with conferences, reunions, weddings, and other milestone events. What’s more, hotel occupancy reflects this trend, and we couldn’t be happier! This is our Living Memorial as it’s meant to be…all aboard!

 

The continued generosity of our members and patriotic supporters through 2022 helped us stay on track with staff recruitment, building maintenance and upgrades, and all of our programs that Commemorate, Educate and Serve. Remember: a Recurring Gift to the Marines’ Memorial, in any amount, makes a big difference by the end of the year. THANK YOU!

 

Also of note for January:

> MMA offices will be closed on Monday 2 January for the New Year holiday.

Your Marines’ Memorial Club & Hotel News for November 2022

A newsletter from one of our fellow veteran organizations in the Bay Area.

NOVEMBER 2022: HOME

Each year, our staff and volunteers pack books, games, snacks, and much more into care packages for some of the thousands of military men and women are serving far away from home. They endure long separations from their families, deployed overseas under stressful and dangerous conditions. This small reminder of home can boost the morale of a Marine, soldier, sailor, airman, or coastguardsman during the holiday months.

 

We know that care packages can’t replace a warm hug from a loved one, but they CAN show service members we appreciate the sacrifices they make to protect our Nation. In recognition of Veterans Day this month, why not donate to deliver a care package in honor of a Veteran who is special to you.

 

If holiday gift-giving is on your mind, we have the perfect strategy: make the Marines’ Memorial Club your home base for rest and refreshment while you make the most of Union Square’s shopping and entertainment options right around the corner. We look forward to seeing you!

 

Also of note for November:

> MMA offices will be closed in observance of Veterans Day, 11 November

> HAPPY 247th BIRTHDAY to the US Marine Corps!

> HAPPY 76th BIRTHDAY to the Marines’ Memorial!

SOLD OUT!

THE 247th USMC BIRTHDAY BALL:  5 NOVEMBER 6PM 

It’s our grandest event of the year, the Marines’ Memorial’s 76th celebration of the US Marine Corps Birthday! Get ready to salute the Corps with our Guest of Honor, General Eric Smith, 36th Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Join fellow Marines’ Memorial families and our friends from the 23rd Marines for food, fun crafts for the kids, a raffle with great prizes, and a visit from Santa.
