Father Longua Farewell Celebration, Sat. 07/14/18
July 14, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 9:00 pm
No TSG1 registration/RSVP required. See below for MD-specific registration.
As some of you already know, our dear chaplain will be leaving us for a new assignment soon, likely mid-August. We all owe him more than most will know. His counsel has been priceless, his support relentless, and he believed in our organization from the start and showed it in his support. No matter how precious his time, he has never failed in doing his very best to spare himself or one of his much needed priests for any of our events and for our beautiful camps Masses and Confessions,
The very least we can do is to be there for his farewell celebration and show him how much we appreciate him. And it looks like it will be a lot of fun too!
Adrian Montes, the Mater Dei Parish Life Coordinator is very excited about TSG1 being part of the event. Please let us show up in force, and IN THE MOST COMPLETE CLASS A POSSIBLE, at least for a group picture with Father, even if you have to change from B to A for that purpose .
At some point during the evening, we will present Father Longua with a “gratitude plaque” (see attached picture) with the following inscription on the back:
To Father Longua
TSG1 First Chaplain
In Appreciation for your Dedication
and Service to the Troop
The only other such plaque in existence was given to Cardinal Burke by TSG National (he should be made aware of that!;) ).
As our Liturgy Lt., I would like Lt. Pinkerton to present this plaque to him, since I will unfortunately be in NC on that day.
1st Lt. Fusselman and Brad Toups will be in charge of the event. Adrian Montes would like for TSG1 help with anything we can from set up to take down, wherever we can help. He is also specifically counting on us to run and supervise the Street Hockey activity. MD has some equipment, but he is asking for people to bring hockey sticks and wiffle balls, so please do, if you have any.

Under “Please Volunteer to Help the Event”, please select all you can do, and under “Other”, type “TSG1”.
Ideally, Adrian would like us there starting at 1530.
Thank you for your participation.
