20 SEP 2016, 11 am - 2 pm.  BATTLE OF BROOKLYN COMMEMORATION.  Rawley American Legion Post and the Old Stone House.
The Club participated in the commemoration of the Battle of Brooklyn.  The central theme of the event was the heroism of the Maryland 400, who bravely charged superior British positions in order to give General George Washington much needed time to organize his retreat to New York City.  
After a wreath laying at the Rawley Post, participants paraded to the Old Stone house.  The roll call of the Divisions was read and another wreath laid.
A reception in the house followed.
