Department Commandant Jerry Devlin attended the State Convention of the Department of Massachusetts last weekend [June 4/5, 2005] in Hyannis, Mass and made a pitch for the Marines Helping Marines Program.

The New England Division donated $1,000. A raffle was held and it raised another $500. Marines voted not to have the usual hospitality room and instead to donate the funds to Marines Helping Marines

Thanks Marines of the Department of Massachusetts!
