This strictly social event will feature food, refreshments, Fighting 69th whiskey, and an open bar from 7 pm to 9 pm. The donation is a $35. After 9 pm, a cash bar will be available.
This is an excellent opportunity to connect with your fellow Emeralds and friends in a historic location before the Armory closes at the end of March for a massive 125-million-dollar renovation project that will take 4-5 years to complete.
So that you know, the dress code for the event is business casual.

MEMORIAL DAY 2023
As Memorial Day approaches, we take time to remember and honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. This day is not just a long weekend for barbecues and sales but a time to pay our respects to the brave men and women who have given their lives defending our freedom and protecting our nation. Let us come together as a community to express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by our fallen heroes. Whether attending a Memorial Day parade, visiting a cemetery, or simply taking a moment of silence, let us honor their courage and bravery. Let us never forget the sacrifices made by these brave souls and ensure that their memory lives on forever.
Stephen J. Flynn, MABSTOA Emerald Society
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of our dear Treasurer, Steve Flynn. Steve was an exceptional leader, colleague, and friend. He will be remembered for his unwavering commitment to our organization and selfless dedication to his role. We ask that you keep Steve and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We will share details about the wake and funeral as soon as they become available.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
At the right-hand side of God may be his faithful soul.
