EVENTS

The Association hold four events each year. They are the 'Bucky' Dinner, Memorial Day Commemoration Ceremony, Reunion and Veterans Remembrance, and the Christmas Social.

Bucky Dinner: A commemoration normally held in March. This dinner is in the honor of Frank "Bucky" Boccanfuso who mobilized with the 112th Field Artillery and served with one of its successor units, the 696th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, throughout World War II. A few years after the war, Bucky decided to hold a reunion dinner, hence the “Bucky Dinner”, celebrating the initial deployment of the unit in January 1941. Although this dinner occurred sporadically until the 1960s, we continue this tradition today. The “Bucky Dinner” continues the tradition of honoring those veterans of War World II who deployed with the 112th Field Artillery.

Memorial Day Commemoration Ceremony: A tribute to our fallen comrades in arms is held at 11:00 am on Memorial Day at the monumemt in front of the National Guard Armory in Lawrenceville.

Reunion and Veterans Remembrance: A formal gathering of the Association in November (usually Veterans Day weekend) to further its heritage and remember and salute our veterans.

Christmas Social: An annual social gathering of members in celebration of the holiday spirit and at which newly elected officials of the Association are installed.
