DECEMBER 2021: ONWARD

Our 75th Anniversary year may be coming to a close, but our mission to honor the legacy of military service never flags, and our recovery continues with a great lineup of in-person Club events. Read on for details – we look forward to seeing you here!

 

This month, as we prepare to ship hundreds of care packages, we remember our troops who will spend the holidays far from home and family.

 

With gratitude for the outstanding generosity of our members and patriot supporters through this most unusual and challenging year, we wish you and yours a peaceful, joyous and safe holiday season.

 

Also of note for December:

> MMA offices will be closed for Christmas, 25 December

> HAPPY 385th BIRTHDAY to the National Guard!

> HAPPY 2nd BIRTHDAY to the US Space Force!

> PLEASE BE PREPARED: The San Francisco Department of Public Health requires us to verify full vaccination status of all event attendees, as well as those wishing to use our Club’s bar, restaurant, and fitness center. We appreciate your understanding.

NOVEMBER 2021: WE CARE

Twice a year, we pack books, games, snacks, and much more into care packages. Then we ship this small touch of home to some of the thousands of military members who willingly left their homes to protect our homes and safeguard our freedom. Last December’s shipment was our biggest ever! With your help, we can again reach a record number of service members who are missing home over the holidays.

 

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.

 

Also of note for November:

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

> HAPPY 246th BIRTHDAY to the US Marine Corps!

> HAPPY 75th BIRTHDAY to the Marines’ Memorial!

> PLEASE BE PREPARED: The San Francisco Department of Public Health requires us to verify full vaccination status of all event attendees, as well as those wishing to use our Club’s bar, restaurant, and fitness center. We appreciate your understanding.

SOLD OUT…THE 246TH MARINE CORPS BIRTHDAY BALL

This year’s in-person event may be sold out, but rest assured that on Friday 5 November we will be celebrating in spirit with every Marine everywhere, past and present.
