Dec 2016 Breeze

Dear Member

Attached is the December 2016 issue of the MOAS monthly newsletter, The Sarasota Breeze, as well as a separate Menu/Reservation Form for you to use when making your reservation for the 34th Annual  Military Gala on Sunday evening December 11, 2016.
In addition to a wonderful evening of food, music and camaraderie, LTC Marc Oliveri, President of the Florida Council of Chapters will conduct the installation ceremony for our 2017 Chapter officer and directors.

We will also be collecting toy for the Marine Corps Toys For Tots program—so please plan on bring an unwrapped new toy to the Gala.

One additional announcement:

"The Wreaths Across America movement is a big part of the Sarasota Military Academy.  SMA invites you to sponsor a wreath for veterans resting at the Sarasota National Cemetery who have no family of friends to remember them.  For many of these veterans, the only visit their grave receives all year is on Wreaths Across America day.  This year it is on Saturday 17 December at 9:30am.

To sponsor a wreath, simply visit and pay by credit or debit card.  Or you may call 866-973-2847. The deadline to sponsor is Sunday 27 November."

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving….and very much looking forward to seeing you all at the Gala

As usual, we hope you enjoy this issue—and ask that you let us know if you have any suggestions for future issues.

Thank you
Len Friedlander
