On behalf of the Officers and Men of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry (FILI) it gives me great pleasure to extend to all the units of the Centennial Legion of Historic Military Commands an invitation to participate in the 82nd Annual CLHMC Meeting to be held in Fayetteville N.C. on 2-4 November 2017.
Experience the charm and Southern hospitality of our colonial inland port city located at the head of navigation on the Cape Fear River. The FILI, a corps of gentlemen, organized in 1793 with unbroken service is a charter member of the CLHMC, and is North Carolina’s official Historic Military Command. The 82nd Annual Meeting of the CLHMC will be filled with activities and events steeped in the rich traditions and customs of the area. Also our guests will travel behind the scenes at Fort Bragg, home of the 82nd Airborne (America’s Guard of Honor), Special Forces (Green Beret) and much more. Mark your calendars for a memorable event in old Dixieland.

LADIES & GENTLEMEN OF THE CENTENNIAL LEGION,
Greetings from the Officers and Men of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry Company. As the CLHMC Annual Meeting gets closer we’ll be providing updates concerning events and activities. On Thursday, 2 November members of the Legion will arrive at the Holiday Inn, and members of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry will be there to greet you and direct you to the Hospitality Room, where food, drinks, and old friends will come together for our annual gathering. About 1800 hours (6p.m.), we will load a bus and transport members of the Legion to the Fayetteville Downtown Historic District for a reception in the Market House located in the center of town. The Market House was built in 1832, after the State House burned in the Great Fire of 1831. It is the location where the United States Constitution was ratified for North Carolina. We are planning a supper on your own at a restaurant [www.sherefe.net] a few doors from the Market House. The upstairs of this fine eating establishment has been reserved for the Legion, so that we may enjoy private dining. After supper, we again load the bus and return to the Hotel, where the Hospitality Room awaits your return. A snap shot of Friday’s activities will follow in an upcoming email.
