|Ridgefield Detachment Marine Corps League|
|Welcome to the Ridgefield Detachment of the Marine Corps League!
The Ridgefield Detachment is a recognized chapter of the the Marine Corps League. Our membership is comprised of mostly Marine Corps veterans. Our meetings are held monthly on the third Wednesday at 7pm. We also have a social gathering most Friday nights.
|Activities In addition to the monthly meetings and community events, the detachment has activities throughout the year including:
Ridgefield Detachment Marine Corps League Col. Richard E. Romine Leadership Award.
A scholarship is awarded to a deserving Ridgefield High School senior who best meets the detachment's criteria for this award, honoring the distinguished character, service and memory of detachment member Colonel Dick Romine.
Memorial Day Parade
The detachment proudly marches with Ridgefield's VFW and American Legion contingents in the annual Memorial Day parade.
Ridgefield High School Commencement
Our color guard is requested annually to present the colors for opening ceremonies of the high school graduation exercise.
Fourth of July Picnic
Each Fourth of July, the league sponsors a block picnic for all tenants of Halpin Lane that include residents of the convalescent home and community housing.
Veterans Day Observation
The League participates in the town's observance of Veterans Day with the VFW and American Legion.
Toys for Tots
This traditional Marine Corps Reserve community service has nearly grown beyond our dedicated volunteers' ability to service the gift retrieval and distribution. Each year the League collects and distributes nearly 20,000 toys to Ridgefield and surrounding communities. We appreciate the charity of our local businesses and community, which allows us to answer the call of those less fortunate.
