Celtic Christmas, Monday, December 22, Beaches Museum and History Park

Celtic Christmas Beaches Museum

Devoted music fans, and others who simply want to celebrate the season, are invited to attend the Celtic Christmas Concert at the Beaches Museum and History Park in Jacksonville Beach. Individuals involved in the Celtic music scene are probably already familiar with Ed Miller, Jil Chambless, Don Penzien, and their remarkable ability to bring Scottish and Irish songs to life. For the rest of us it is an opportunity to experience a night of truly unique music and vocals ranging from ballads and upbeat songs to toe-tapping tunes.

Two performances will be held on December 22nd at 5:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. with tickets available at $20 per person in advance, $25 day of show. Tickets for the event are available at

Join us for a night of wonderful and unique music, delicious food from MoJo’s Southern Soul BBQ Kitchen, and the most inviting and intimate atmosphere in Jacksonville.

Dinner is a suggested $10 donation and can be purchased that evening. Dinner on the chapel patio begins at 6 P.M., concerts at 5 P.M. and 7 P.M.

Additionally, tours of the Holidays in the Village will be available to concert-goers at a reduced price of $5.

Our First Responsibility as Veterans Is to Remember

Marine Memorial Jacksonville

As the rest of the country moves on, we will take the time to remember those who served and sacrificed. This year Jacksonville Semper Fidelis Society (JSFS) will add the names of the fallen Marines and Corpsmen from Iraq and Afghanistan to the memorial. It is important that these Marines and Corpsmen are not ever forgotten and their families know their sacrifice wasn’t in vain.

KW-USMC-Evergreen Flyer_2014Here are the names that will be added to the marble markers:

Nathan Clemons

Timothy Poole

Jonathan Taylor

Joshua Watkins

Marcus Preudhomme

Julian Woods
FMF Corpsmen

Patrick Rapicault

Richard Lord

Patrick Gallagher

Randall Hansen


Semper Fidelis will always ensure that Marines and Navy FMF Corpsmen are respected and recognized for their service.

Please pass the word to other Marines and FMF Corpsmen
These Marines and Corpsmen gave their lives, the least we can do is give 40 minutes of out time to honor them and all the other Marines and Corpsmen who are no longer with us.
