TUN TAVERN TEAM DINNER
Members held another dinner at the Villagio Restaurant in Palm Desert on August 13th. Despite the month of August being a vacation month, the hardy desert dwellers showed up for another fun evening: Wes Ahlgren,Les & Deeno Carlyle, Charlie Garbarini, Howard Lehmnan, Gene McClendon, Dick Partee, Bill Ross, Jim Sullivan, George Stettler, Quint Villanueva and Linn Wiley.
Great food and beverage prevailed. As things wound down the entire group stood up and did an impromptu MARINES' HYMN for the benefit of the other customers there. We must have been pretty good since there was some applause and no boos.
The evening concluded with a surprise when the server announced that the tab had been paid by a mysterious benefactor.
Next dinner will be in the fourth quarter. If you are interested in becoming member, dues are only $100 annually. The extra money enables the Chapter to provide more support for the 7th Marines and the Marine JROTC cadets.
Thank You, hope you enjoyed this month's E-Scuttlebutt Newsletter.
