The Marine Corps Birthday is celebrated by Marines around the world every year on the 10th of November regardless of duty station. Our League celebrates the birthday of our Corps by hosting a Birthday Ball complete with appropriate opening ceremony and the traditional cake-cutting ceremony. By tradition, the cake-cutting ceremony offers the first slice of cake to the oldest Marine present who then hands it to the youngest Marine present symbolizing the more experienced Marine passing along his knowledge to the younger Marine. One and all are welcome to join our family and friends in celebrating the birthday of our illustrious Corps.
The Birthday Ball for 2018 will be on Saturday, the 10th of November, at Williams-on-the-Lake in Medina. Cost is $40 per person.
