2020 Reunion Update
2nd Battalion, 4th Marines Association – 2020 Annual Reunion Update
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided to cancel the 2020 reunion in Pleasanton, California. The reunion was to be held in conjunction with the Caledonian Club of San Francisco’s Scottish Gathering & Games. The state of California, Alameda County and Alameda County Fairgrounds have yet to advise its’ citizenry on when and how they will be easing present restrictions on gatherings and events. Hotels in the area are not taking reservations at present. Thus, it was not in our best interests to keep dragging things out hoping for a resolution.
If members had made hotel reservations prior to the pandemic shut down, it is encouraged that you cancel them to avoid penalties.
This being said, it is understood that our President, Scott Huesing, is thinking about holding an abbreviated sort of a reunion event at his home in Southern California on 10 October. We will put out information on this as it becomes known. Additionally, I have offered to host the 2021 reunion in Pleasanton under the same auspices as were planned for this year. I believe the board is agreeable to this, so stay tuned to the web site for further reunion information.
We are sad that this all has occurred, but we are resilient and will be together again. The brotherhood will not die.
Kindest regards & Semper fi,
