    May is on its way out with the cold rainy days amen, and June is looking a lot better. Our property is looking good this year thanks to the efforts of all the associates and Marines that donated much of their time. The wall has been releveled and we removed the old shed and replaced it closer to the lake. This enables us to locate the band stage closer to the lake and directly behind the garage of our neighbor for maximum sound. The new dance area is flatter and larger for guests to dance. Once more we would like to recognize Justin Bowman for his dedication to the League for making our facility look good.

    I would like to thank all the Marines who participated in all the Wakes, Funerals and Memorial ceremonies this month. The City of Worcester thru the newspaper is giving us more recognition for our participation in the events we have always stepped up to.

    As most of you know by now, our Marine Richard Gates passed away this month of May. He will be missed by all of us especially the afternoon bar staff which he made many friends.

    The surveyors are all done with our property and have submitted their work to our Engineer so that we can enter our next phase. They will be putting together a drawing showing the club in relation to the lake. Also a generic drawing with a seawall so that we can submit it to the city to get a building permit. I am in the process of contacting our engineer to see how long this procedure takes.

     Our Golf Tournament is on the 15th of June and we are hoping that our turnout will be better than last year. The weather we hope will be in our favor like last year. We are asking Marine wife’s and associates that can help make this event come off without a hitch. Golfers can sign up all the way up to the day of the tournament, although it would make Phil Forde’s day if they signed up early.

  Ronald Reagan On Courage  

    “[O]ur time is now. If we carry the day and turn the tide, we can hope that as long as men speak of freedom and those who have protected it, they will remember us, and they will say, ‘Here were the brave and here their place of honor.’”  

   “No… weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and woman.”

     “There are no easy answers but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what is morally right.”

Millions more vets to be able to shop at exchanges online
Honorably discharged veterans could be able to shop online at military exchange websites as early as Veterans Day, barring any objections from Congress.
The change in Defense Department policy would open up online exchange shopping privileges to about 18 million more people. It won’t apply to shopping at brick-and-mortar exchange stores.
