Please reserve Monday, June 11th for the 10th anniversary of this escort and welcoming our US Marines from Camp Lejuene Special Operations Command …also known as the Marine Raider Regiment. This year we anticipate 20 previously deployed Marines and their spouses for a little R&R at Keowee Key. We would sincerely like to ask for your support with this worthwhile endeavor.
We have shorten the route considerably from past years, staging will be at Southern Wesleyan University campus starting at 11:30 AM, the Marines will arrive at approximately 1:00 PM with the police escort leading us out at 1:30 PM. Upon arriving members of the Marine Corps League will direct you to the staging area on campus and others in day glow green/yellow vests will line you up. Any bikes with large flags will lead the escort.
While awaiting the arrival of the Marines, there will be music, beverage and food vendors, tables & chairs, shaded areas, canopies, etc., bottled water will be provided. When the Marines arrive they will march in formation into the staging area for a personal meet & greet, but please thank them for their service and having our back. Just before leaving we will have a few announcements, short invocation, Pledge of Allegiance and singing of the National Anthem.
The SC highway patrol will lead followed by patriotically decorated bikers and jeeps with local law enforcement vehicles interspersed and the remaining bikes to follow. Let’s provide the THUNDER that is expected along the route.
We continue to thank you for your support and the personal impact you make representing the upstate and honoring these men and women who give back so much to our country.
