Gunny Lends a Hand


The Toys for Tots campaign got underway last week and we have our very own "toy warrior" here at Belle Isle. Dexter Floyd, whom most of us know as Gunny, is leading the effort and has already gotten donations from folks outside of Belle Isle. As a Gunnery Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps, he was responsible for planning and coordinating his unit's operations and training, so he is a natural to lead the Toys for Tots campaign. He will count on another Marine, Reservist Mike Voiselle, to help out.

The Toys for Tots box is in the Yacht Club lobby again this year, and is placed out of the way in a closet when there is an event at the Yacht Club. Bring your new, unwrapped toys at any time. The Marines usually pick up the box of toys in early December, so please don't wait too late. We want to make this the biggest and best campaign yet.
