NEJEEP 2016 Toys for Tots Drive
« on: October 28, 2016, 02:57:12 PM »


Location: Toys R Us Parking Lot
               1460 Pleasant Valley Road,
                Manchester, CT


Date: Saturday Dec 3rd, 2016
Time: 10:00am - 3:00pm

Join Northeast Jeep and the USMC for its 8th Annual Toys for Tots Drive.

A new, unwrapped toy, per person, is required to attend the meet & greet.  

We are doing things a little different this year.   Instead of holding this event indoors, and not being able to see any decorated Jeeps.   We've decided to host it in the Toys R Us parking lot!!

Prizes will be awarded for Best Decorated Jeep.  

Also,  the "Big Guy" himself might be making an appearance.  
So make sure to bring the family.

We've been asked to start the parking in the highlighted area, and then go from there as jeeps show up.

Would we be able to "section" this off? So non-Jeeps don't take our spots?

Unfortunately we will not have that ability.
However,  the manager said that most of the event they do like this,  the majority of the group will be able to park together.

I'd like to stop by in the morning. I'll have to see the if the timing works out well enough. Manchester is 1hr 10 minutes from me, and I'm leaving for PA around 1:00 or so that day. Hopefully I can make a short stop to help out if that's ok.
