Leathernecks celebrate 237th birthday

Marines and their guests gathered at Shorehaven Golf Club in Norwalk Friday, Nov. 9, to celebrate the 237th birthday of the U. S. Marine Corps.

Bob Kelly of Fairfield read the Commandant of the Marine Corps’ birthday message, followed by a traditional cake cutting ceremony and presentation of the first and second pieces of cake to Bill Phillips and Bob Liesegang, the oldest and youngest Marines at the luncheon.

Taking part in the ceremony are Kelly, Bob Cox of Norwalk, Steve Abbott of Stamford, Bill Phillips of Greenwich, Col. Mike Di Scipio of New Canaan, Bob Liesegang of Ridgefield, Dick Redican of Darien and Tom Towers of New Canaan.

Proceeds of the event go to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, a non-profit organization that grants education tuition to Marines and dependents of Marines on the basis of merit and need.
