200 Attend Pearland, TX Poolee Event
The Pearland, TX Poolee/Parent night was a great success. There were approximately 200 people in attendance for this event, 10 recruiters and 1 Drill Instructor from San Diego.
Here's what our volunteers had to say about the event:
"We had a table set up at the front of the room near the large screen where there was a PowerPoint shown to the attendees. We handed out talking points to all of the loved ones of the poolees that were there and gave brief information about who we were and about Marine Parents. Michelle Tate gave a 7-minute 51-second presentation over the talking points and we took questions in person at the table after the event was over. We handed out all 100 parent packets and everyone really seemed receptive and thankful for the information that was given."
"Parents loved the giveaways and took the brochures that were on the table. It was so wonderful to be able to spread the word about the Marine Parents organization and we are honored to have been there to represent Marine Parents. We are ready to do it again!"
