We are entering the final few weeks before the fireworks begin in Tulsa, OK and excitement is in the air; can you feel it? Attendees are booking reservations with the second overflow hotel and indications are that we will have outstanding attendance. There will be a large number of M.O.D.D. members in town advancing to pedigree and many more participating in the Supreme Growl, to make for a howling good time for all.
On the League side there will be several classes and information sessions, to include: website access of official forms, how to prepare a 990, and questions on Membership. Progress reports will be presented on Budget, Bylaws, Membership, and Merchandise. We hope you will attend and take this information and knowledge back to your Detachments.
Remember, General Robert Neller, the 37th Commandant of the Marine Corps will be our guest of honor and guest speaker at the Grand Banquet. This is an unprecedented honor and all who can, should attend to listen to and speak with your "Marine Corps Commandant." We are truly honored to have him in attendance.
Be sure to travel safely and enjoy the scenery in a portion of the real west and frontier. The Nation of the People have many displays and tales of their heritage and customs to thrill us all.
