Regimental Encampment Day

Important Information

Hello Young Marines,


Our Regiment has planned a day of fun for all the units in the regiment. The details are as follows:


Regimental day at the park is scheduled for Saturday, September 7th. For those that have never visited this park, there is only one entrance/exit and the park is small enough in size that we are able to keep pretty good tabs on our YM's.  Unit's are asked to arrive for 10:30am so that they can be addressed by the Regimental Commander and go over the day's outline. YM's will be allowed to buddy up and enjoy the park.  The cost is $40 per person and includes entrance to the park for the day and a meal consisting of either 2 pieces of pizza, chicken tenders and fries, hamburger and fries or hot dog and fries.  The park closes at 7pm, we will gather again for dismissal.  Uniform of the day will be appropriate shorts/pants and the red national t-shirt. 

I will need a list of Young Marines attending and payment for the event no later than Monday August 26th. Payment can be made online if necessary just let me know what you need.


Any questions, please contact me or the Unit Commander.


Thanks,


Wayne Hamilton, Executive Officer

Important Information

Parade Update

Parade Update


I finally have all the details for the parade on Saturday and remember this parade is mandatory unless excused by the Unit Commander or myself. Uniform of the day is full BDU’s, cover and red t-shirt. All uniforms and boots should be clean and well presented. Ribbons should be worn when available. There have been several events this week where Young Marines have arrived without covers or in the incorrect uniform. Anyone who arrives wearing incorrect gear will be sent home and not allowed to participate.


Everyone needs to meet at Clegg Field 176 Winter Avenue Warwick RI 02889 by 9:30 AM on Saturday. Anyone getting dropped off can go directly to Clegg Field and meet the unit there. Anyone that is parking should park at St Benedicts Church which is at 135 Beach Avenue. There are two parking lots at the church, one small and one large. There is a shuttle at the American Legion at the end of the parade which will return anyone that parks here back to their car from the end. This shuttle runs until 3:00 PM.


There is additional parking available at St Marks Church (111 West Shore Road) and the Elks Lodge (1915 West Shore Road) but these are both farther away from Clegg Field which is the start of the parade. This additional parking and shuttle could be very useful to anyone staying after the parade to visit the exhibits at the American Legion, take advantage of the food trucks or the rock-climbing wall.


The parade is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM and pickup will be at the American Legion at the end of the parade at 12:30 PM. It is going to be extremely hot on Saturday and all Young Marines should arrive well fed and hydrated. We will have additional water with is, a cooler full of water on the parade route and another in the Marine Corps League vehicle.


Thanks,
