Changing of the Guard - Farewell to the Captain
March Meeting & Drill
March 31, 2019
The Times Are a Chagin'... after serving as our Captain since the beginning, and seven terms as President, Joe Bilardello passed the reins of command to Lieutenant Tom Demaria, henceforward, Captain Tom Demaria. And as VP, Tom will serve as President until our elections next January. We had a record turnout, including Special Guests, for a unique moment like this. We started off with Joe's last drill that was fortunately spared the rain that later fell the same day. Out in the field, Joe handled over the Regimental Colors to symbolize the passing of authority to a new military leader. Then, we moved into the Chapel where Joe presided over the last meeting. We presented Joe with a gift and he handed over the gavel to Tom. Once all the formalities were over, we walked over to Blackbird's Grille for the Afterparty. Best of luck to the Bilardellos as they climb into the stagecoach for their ride out to Texas."
