Annual Alumni Muster & Easter Lily Remembrance
On Corps Day weekend, the Citadel Club of Charleston, in coordination with the Citadel Alumni Association will conduct the Annual Alumni Muster and Easter Lily Remembrance to honor those members of the Citadel’s Long Grey Line who have passed during the preceding calendar year.
This year, we are also partnering with the Office of the Chaplain to the Corps of Cadets to present an even more robust experience. The Muster ceremony will take place at Summerall Chapel on the campus in Charleston, SC. Members of the Corps of Cadets will assist in conducting a tribute and roll call for all our late classmates and comrades who passed during 2022.
Easter Lily Remembrance
One other enhancement is being added to the ceremony, since this is the first year we have held the Muster at Summerall Chapel, Family and friends have the opportunity to have an Easter Lily displayed on the alter during the Muster in loving memory of the departed. A donation of $50.00 would be appreciated with the net proceeds going to support the youth programs sponsored by the Citadel's Chaplaincy. Those attendees who donate and live nearby are welcome to take their lily home. Otherwise, the flower will find another good home.
To reserve your Easter Lily, please visit us on line, no later than Monday, 20 March 2023.
Here is the full schedule for Sunday morning, the 26th of March. All are welcome at these events and there is no cost for attendance. We would love to have you spend the morning with us.
0900 - 1000 Sunday Services as regularly scheduled at Summerall Chapel. Chaplain Aaron Meadows presiding.

We sincerely hope that you will make plans to join us for this solemn celebration of the many lives who were shaped, to some degree, by this institution. If you are able to join us for the Muster, we ask that you bring with you a framed photo of your loved one as a cadet and/or later in life. These will be displayed on a "Table of Remembrance" at the entrance to the Chapel. There is no cost to attend the Muster, but all attending are asked to pre-register.
