Marine Corps to celebrate 238th birthday at Dole Institute

Thu, 11/07/2013

LAWRENCE — A cake-cutting ceremony celebrating the 238th birthday of United States Marine Corps will take place at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at the Dole Institute of Politics.

This year’s ceremony will mark the 21st time the University of Kansas and the city of Lawrence have gathered to celebrate the Marine Corps’ birthday. On Nov. 10, 1991, five KU veterans gathered with city employees in a small celebration with a simple cake. From that day, the ceremony has grown from the Lawrence City Commission chambers to the Union Pacific Depot to the Dole Institute of Politics. 

The guest of honor is USMC Lt. Col. (ret.) Perry Puccetti, president and CEO of The Triple-I Corp., a privately held technology consultancy with headquarters in Overland Park. Puccetti also serves as the current chairman of the board for KCnext – The Technology Council of Greater Kansas City.

The event is free and open to the public.
