May 17: AFF Navy League Gala Extravaganza

Gala 3

VADM Caldwell photoJoin us for the Annual Navy League Gala to honor our Military and recognize our community and political leaders. Each year, as the finale to Armed Forces celebrations in Bremerton, our Navy League Council honors the local military commands by hosting the only black tie event, aside from formal military balls, in the area. The Grand Marshall of the Armed Forces Day Parade is traditionally the guest of honor and this year, VADM James “Frank” Caldwell, the Navy’s Inspector General, will be our guest speaker.


USS Nebraska Olympic TrophyAdditionally, as part of the evening, our council presents a special, annual award to the submarine crews who have achieved the top marks in battle efficiency. Competition is very competitive and this award is coveted among the boats homeported at Naval Base Kitsap. Our council started this trophy bowl many years ago and now a similar award is provided in Kings Bay, Georgia to a submarine that is homeported on the East Coast.

The Bremerton-Olympic Peninsula Navy League Gala is the social event of the year in Bremerton and each year we recognize very special people for their outstanding contributions to our council and the military. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with one another prior to and following dinner and the program. Alejandro will perform Flamenco guitar after the official ceremony.

Numerous business and community leaders join us for this recognition ceremony. You do not want to miss this year’s Gala at the Admiral Theatre and it could sell out early.
