Fill The Float With Toys For Tots This Weekend


HMS Implacable, the local chapter of the Royal Manticoran Navy, in support of the US Marine Corps Reserve “Toys for Tots” drive will have a float in this year’s Twinkle Lights Parade on Dec. 4 at 6:00 PM.

Due to our current shortage of toys we must sadly report that our float is currently empty, and humbly ask for the community’s assistance.  The officers and crew of HMS Implacable would ask everyone who can to bring a new and unwrapped toy to the parade.  When you see our float in the parade please step forward to drop your contribution into our float, or hand it to one of our volunteers who will be marching alongside.  Help us “Fill the Float!” and make sure that every child wakes up with a present under their tree!

Toys for Tots is a national charity organized by the United States Marines Corps Reserve. Its goal is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The United States Marine Corps Reserve has been distributing toys to those in need since 1947.  More information can be found at

The Royal Manticoran Navy ( is the official Honor Harrington fan association. We celebrate the work of David Weber and the universe he has created in the Military Science Fiction genre with his Honor Harrington book series. The Association’s structure is set up based on the examples in the books and participation teaches service and leadership skills.  Members of the organization advance those skills by their participation in community services and charitable events.

HMS Implacable is the “ship” that houses the local chapter of the Royal Manticoran Navy and is based in Los Alamos. The crew includes personnel from Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Espanola, Chimayo, Farmington, Peralta and Montezuma. In addition to their annual Toys for Tots program, HMS Implacable’s crew cleans the grounds and places Flags and Christmas wreaths at the Santa Fe National Cemetery, participates in the Big Brothers & Big Sisters “Bowl for Kid’s Sake” campaign, as well as working with Habitat for Humanity.
