Weight Loss Goal

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Mark is trying to shred some of his body weight. Everyone should encourage him to eat healthy and exercise consistently.

His current weight is 248.5 pounds. He should share his bodyweight goals with everyone so we can help him reach them.

Dodge Ball Results and Plunge Sign Up

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

The dodge ball championship ( held Saturday, Dec 5 at Gold’s gym) was a  major good time and great workout for the 13 plus Dodge Ball participants.  Mark P was the MVP as he was on the floor longer than anyone and Doug S was hit most often and sent to the Dodge Ball jail.

Future events to be posted and all are invited.

Plunge is on and the clocking is ticking…. What a better gift to give than sign up a family member or friend for a jump in the ocean.  They are sure to remember you for a long time for such a thoughtful surprise.

Christmas for Unit 20071

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

This year we are celebrating soldiers in Iraq who have literally given up their lives to serve their country. In particular, we raised funds to contribute Christmas gifts to a unit of 12 men. This is unit 20071, in which Bob Cassidy’s son Matt serves.

The list of troops in Matt’s unit are listed below. Please take a minute to read through their names. Even though you don’t know them personally, take a moment to think about them and their families who won’t see each other this holiday season, or for many months after.

Sgt Van

Cpl Kelly

Cpl Acosta

Cpl Hayden

Cpl Richardson

Cpl Cassidy

Lcpl Gonzolas

Lcpl Whatton

Lcpl Canterburry

Lcapl Reeves

Lcpl Kennedy

Lcpl Stover

Even better, if you have the time send a letter or card to them. Here is the mailing address:

2nd AA BN D CO
UNIT 73580
FPO AE 09509-3580

You can even save a stamp by using motomail. Try it for free:
Motomail is an online mailing service that will deliver your mail to Marines, Army and Navy personnel, for free. The letters are delivered quickly since they are printed overseas and mailed from that location.
This service is great for soldiers who have sporadic access to email and telephone.
I already have an account (registration is free) and checked that Matt’s Unit is listed as a destination.

Thanks for taking the time this season to support our soldiers serving our country in Iraq.
