Pre-Holiday Day Picnics
We hold picnics before Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day on the Marine Landing Deck beside the Marine Club. Targeting active duty H&S Battalion Marines and civilians, these picnics follow a battalion all hands safety brief and sends everyone off before the holidays with a good time. We provide the free food and beverages to battalion personnel, live DJ entertainment, and door prizes, courtesy of our commerical sponsors.
Education & Career Fair
Fairs, scheduled for April and September, are one of our most popular ways to connect with military personnel and their spouses, a perfect venue to showcase your corporate message by sponsoring the refreshments and resource guide, given to all attendees and participating schools and companies, plus uploaded to the web with hotlinks.
Headquarters & Service Battalion Marine Corps Birthday Ball
The observance of the Marine Corps birthday is a time-honored tradition held with the highest degree of propriety. As a sponsor, you will experience this traditional gathering—held wherever Marines are stationed—with Marines, their family members, and guests who look forward to this special event and appreciate your support.
April is Month of the Military Child, which we celebrate with a children’s fair on a Saturday in April. Drawing from our network of family child care providers and families throughout the National Capital Region, we offer games, information booths, family friendly activities, and more. Everyone leaves with a goodie bag full of giveaways, courtesy of our commerical sponsors.
Prevention and Awareness EventsThese important topics are addressed by Marine & Family Services personnel to assist Marines and their families. April's awareness activities include a "Pinwheels For Prevention" campaign, with a "garden" of pinwheels on the field beside the gym. We've recently added a Joint Services Disabilities Awareness Fair in March, in which families throughout the Department of Defense who have disabled family members come together to receive the latest information and resources all in one place.
Marine Spouse Appreciation
The toughest job in the Corps is Marine spouse! We honor spouses each May with an appreciation event. Be part of expressing your thanks to this dedicated group who support our Marines by keeping the home fires burning brightly.
