On June 7, Mary Ann Brown, Alice Kay, and Rebecca Simons attended the National Young Marine Adult Leaders Conference in Reno, NV. At this conference Brown accepted the Division 3 Unit of the Year award for the Cumberland County Young Marine Unit. This award was presented to her by 3rd Division Commander Cliff Hill and Young Marine celebrity spokesman R. Lee Emery. She also received her own award as 3rd Division’s Volunteer of the Year. Division 3 covers Tennessee which has eight Young Marine units, North Carolina with 13 units, South Carolina with three units, Georgia with five units and Florida with 13 units.

Both of these awards will be on display at the Young Marine’s used book sale fundraiser at the Crossville Housing Activity Center at 236 Taylor Street Aug 1 and 2 from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Also anyone wanting to sign up to join either the Young Marines or to be an adult leader will be able to pick up an application at the same time. The next recruit will start on Sept. 13 and you need to have a sports physical by this time in order to attend, so be sure and pick up the paperwork soon if you are planning on joining.
