An annual U.S. Marine Corps birthday celebration is Sunday at Semper Fi Bar and Grille, 9770 Main. St., Woodstock, owner Ralph Roeger said.

The celebration begins at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the establishment, which is popular with veterans. There will be food served in a tent outside the restaurant, while the bar will be open during the party, Roeger said. The public is invited and hundreds are expected to attend.

A cake will be cut at 8 p.m. Also, the youngest and oldest Marines in attendance will be recognized, Roeger said. Last year the youngest Marine was 18. This year Marines who are 97 and 99 may attend, he said.

Roeger encouraged people to visit the Semper Fi Bar and Grille Facebook page for more information.
