The 2018 Marine Corps Birthday Ball hosted by the Ellis County Detachment 1452 was held on Saturday, 10 November, 2018 at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. This year's Second Annual event was a huge success with nearly 170 guests in attendance as we celebrated this 243rd Birthday of the United States Marine Corps here in our hometown communities within Ellis County. Planning for the 2019 Marine Corps Ball is soon to be underway and we hope that you will join us as this event continues to grow.
