The Parris Island Alumni Reunion is going on it’s 4th year. Our first year was celebrated in Parris Island and Hilton Head, much like this years will be. We had a reception at the yellow footprints, a BBQ at Elliott’s Beach and a wonderful Marine Corps Birthday Ball at the Beach House on Hilton Head Island. Then, we shifted gears and took our reunion to the birthplace of the Marine Corps, Philadelphia! Our guests were able to tour the city and enjoyed two great parties. Going forward, we plan to keep the reunion similar to the first year, but not hold a Birthday Ball unless the guest count increases. For now, we plan to have a nice dinner together on the beach on the Marine Corps Birthday with a Cake Cutting Ceremony that will follow typical Birthday Ball requirements. We will also continue to have a tour of Parris Island after Recruit Graduation. Instead of a BBQ at Elliott’s Beach, we will have it at the Log Cabin on Parris Island.
We look forward to seeing everyone from our past reunions and meeting new Marine Corps Brothers and Sisters!
