Local Marine Corps veterans, led by Michael Bowman, of Lincoln City, will be gathering on Nov. 10, to celebrate the birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps.
The group will come together for dinner at 5 p.m. at the Rogue River Steakhouse at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City.
This event will be casual and won’t have all the “bells and whistles” of the usual Birthday Ball, but it will be an opportunity for Marines to gather and get acquainted with other Marines on the coast, and possibly be a building block for a future and perhaps more formal event.
Bowman is also looking into establishing a local branch of the Marine Corps League — another opportunity for Marines to gather. For more information or to RSVP, call or text Bowman at 623-703-1146.
