Rotary Club of Dunn Loring-Merrifield
Immediate Past President


While we enjoy the benefits of freedom, countless men and women are serving in our armed forces in remote locations around the globe.  These brave men and women have chosen to serve our country; many of them are away from home, in harm’s way and living each day with very few modern comforts.  The members of DunnLoring-Merrifield Rotary appreciate the service of self-sacrifice of our military, especially those serving aboard ships and deployed to distant countries.  It is our club’s privilege to know a very fine navy officer who is deployed far from home.  To express our appreciation we have set up Operation Treats for Troop: A monthly care package to bring a little bit of home to our dear friend Chris and his buddies!

Thanks Chris and company for your service and dedication!!!!  We hope you enjoy our personal selection of snacks, notes and memorabilia from home!  Until we see you back home in Virginia…our care packages will be coming your way, filled with love and appreciation for all you do!
