Once again, the Yuma Platoon of the Desert Mustangs of Arizona is pleased to host the fall muster of the chapter. It promises to be a fun day beginning with a colorful ceremony at the parade deck, MCAS, then a luncheon at one of Yuma's favorite restaurants, and capped off with a stop-by at the quarters of Don & Evelyn Mosley.
Date: Wednesday, 8 Nov 2017. Time: 1000
Where: Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma, parade deck.
First, we will witness the Corps’ cake cutting ceremony and an address by the CO MCAS. Included also is a colorful presentation of the Corps’ period uniforms with a narration. We have reserved seats in the VIP section under the canopy. (Bring a light wrap - it could be cool in the shade). The uniform is red-side-out / casual.
Second, at high noon we will assemble at a sit-down luncheon, Julieanna's Patio and Café in west Yuma, where you can order off the menu and experience our own cake cutting ceremony. There will be a brief welcome with a spattering of business and during lunch a short presentation of Marine Corps trivia. Julieanna's tel. 928-317-1961.
Third, before leaving for home, you are invited to a water stop at the quarters of Don & Evelyn Mosley in east Yuma, Foothills.
