2. At this time, no one can predict where the current Covid-19 crisis is going or how long we will be in this no school, restricted travel, quarantine situation. We do know that currently all our recreation centers and meetings are closed or canceled. At best, any future schedule is now very tentative.In light of this situation and for the safety and wellbeing of all concerned, The Marine Corps League Colonel Phillip C. DeLong Detachment # 1267 is canceling the scheduled award presentation ceremony on 20 April 2020 at 7:00 PM at the Bacall Recreational Center, 2041 Canal Street in The Villages. As much as we would like to present the checks to each of the 2020 Leadership Scholarship recipients in front of our entire membership, we have decided to mail the award checks to each recipient instead. Each of the six 2020 Leadership Scholarship recipients, will receive a $1000 award check to assist them in their future endeavors.


Remember, this 2020 Leadership Scholarship is presented by The Marine Corps League Colonel Phillip C. DeLong Detachment # 1267 and should NOT be confused with other programs. We highly recommend that you also complete the Marine Corps League Scholarship Program application (both State and National) at www.MCLDOF.ORG(Scholarship fund) and www.MCLEAGUE.COM(under MCL Programs -- Then scholarships).

Semper Fidelis,

Fred Geier
