Dolly Campis Awarded Detachment Associate Marine of the Year by Commandant Danny Rooks

The “Howlin’ Mad” Smith detachment of the Marine Corps League has awarded Ms. Dolly Campis as the detachment Associate Member of the Year. Associate members are an integral part of our detachment and Ms. Dolly Campis embodies the true spirit of volunteerism.

Dolly steps in and offers assistance at all Marine Corps League functions. As a member of the hospitality committee, Dolly helps greet members as they arrive at the monthly meetings to ensure everyone in attendance feels welcome. She assists with the room set up for the monthly meetings, whether that means making coffee or setting up tables, as well as sells tickets for the raffles that are held at the end of our monthly meetings. Dolly completes these tasks in a cheerful manner and expects no accolades for her considerable efforts.

Additionally, Dolly helps organize our holiday Christmas party, Marine Corps birthday celebration and our summer picnic. She works at our yearly golf tournament and is present at the Veteran's Day parade and dinner. When our detachment hosted the Department state convention, she spent tireless hours manning the raffle room selling tickets. She is always willing to help with even the smallest of tasks. Dolly assists the Ship Store with set up at detachment, department and division conferences. In addition to the many contributions she makes to the Marine Corps League, Dolly also devotes considerable time and talent to other organizations. She currently serves as First Vice Commander of the Women's Auxiliary at The American Legion Post 171. She supports all the veterans projects including visitation and working in the kitchen at the Legion's weekly burger night and provides support for currently serving military personnel by obtaining donations to be sent in care packages to military service members around the world. Ms Campis is also active in her church, assisting with banquets and fund raising, taking meals to home bound church members and visiting members both in the hospital and at home.

Dolly Campis truly has a servant's heart and quickly jumps in to offer support for anyone in need. She is reliable and always follows through with the commitments she makes. Her willingness to help and her ''can do'' attitude combined with her fun loving spirit serve to make her an integral part of our detachment..

Congratulations Dolly for being selected Detachment Associate Marine of the Year.
