ANNOUNCEMENTS
  
What a great and busy Veteran's Day Weekend. We had three separate color guard engagements (Canyon Pointe Elementary, Tomball Walmart and Texas Road House) for Veteran recognition ceremonies, along with setting up and executing the MARINE CORPS BIRTHDAY BALL! Huge shout out to all of the cadets and adults that helped to make the Ball successful. Specific thanks to Cadet Lt. Macey Guerro and Katie Rasch for decorating as well as the support provided by Mrs. Terry Sowers. Also would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Howard for helping to serve the food and cake. Speaking of cake, also would like to thank Kimberly, Cadet Walter's mom, with the extra birthday cake and surprise birthday cake for Gunner and I. The Flicker link to the pictures will be posted soon.
 
With the Ball behind us, we are now looking forward to the Tomball Holiday Parade which is this Saturday, November 17. We will need the cadets to be at the school no later than 7:45 am so that we can take a bus to downtown Tomball and be staged to start the parade down Main Street at 10 am. We will march from Cherry Street to Alma Street (vicinity of HEB parking Lot). If you are attending the parade then you can pick up your cadet at the end of the parade. Otherwise we will take buses back to TMHS and hope to be there around 1130. Uniform will be camouflage unless they are are on the color guard. We understand if you have made plans to go out of town for the Thanksgiving Holiday but we would love as many cadets to come out and support as possible.

FUNDRAISING
 
Doorhanger distribution: Great job on Door Hanger distribution. The cadet's efforts earned us $1500 dollars which will be used towards drill meet costs and the acquisition of new equipment and uniforms.
 
Flag detail: Another great job with the 9 Nov flag detail. We put out about 290 flags between three cars. If there are any parents who can drive and have a truck then you are always welcome to join us. We will really need your help on 18 Nov for when we have to bring the flags back in because we imagine a lot of people will be leaving town for Thanksgiving vacation.Call Gunner or LtCol if you want to volunteer.
