GA-1 Volunteered at the Toys for Tots Warehouse. The President of the Atlanta-area Toys for Tots said she needs Marines every day as GA-1 knocked out the warehouse! To put it in perspective: There were 150 volunteers. 20 of them Marines. GA-1 and Officer Cadets. One side of the warehouse was GA-1, the other side the Cadets, the middle 100+ civilians. The sides of the warehouse were unbelievably in order and cleaned up. The middle was .... not quite in order and not near as much done. Be proud GA-1!! Oorah!!

GA1 took part in the DAV 5K Race! Lots of veterans, several Women Marines, friendly course!
Then GA1 celebrated our beloved Corps' birthday with much rabble-rousing at Semper Fi Bar & Grille. Five other Women Marines outside of GA1 were identified at this grand celebration including the proprietor! A grand time was had by all between the food, the cake, the ceremony, the camaraderie, the beer, & the silkies!

Meeting at Yeah, Burger in Atlanta. We decided on Officers to get our chapter going and talked about a variety of projects for us to pursue. Committing to attend, participate, and recruit were deemed our important factors in getting started. A "build it and they will come" attitude! We are excited to get a chapter going in the Atlanta area again.
