A group of area Marine veterans will mark the 237th birthday of the Marine Corps next week with an event at Kansas University’s Dole Institute of Politics.
U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran will be the featured speaker at the event, which begins at 10:30 a.m. Nov. 9 at the Dole Institute.
The event will also include a performance by the Lawrence High School Chorale.
Anyone is welcome to attend, organizer Erv Hodges said. About 180 people attended last year’s edition of the annual event, he said.
