We are just coming off a fantastic event supporting the Washington state Science and Engineering Fair at the first of the month. Helen Miller did a super job in recruiting 32 NL judges. In addition to judging for the fair we judged for the Office of Naval Research and our seven awards in Naval Science.  There were over 600 students presenting, and their presentations were amazing! If you get a chance next year please come, I know you will have a great time!

May is a very busy month for us supporting the Bremerton Armed Forces Festival. The exact details are laid out in the Newsletter and Website.  Saturday May 6 is the military Culinary arts Competition at Olympic College. What started out as a Chili Cook-off as developed into a contest that draws cooks from all over the region. Saturday May 20 is a full day stating with breakfast on 4th street at 7 AM, Parade at 10 AM, Heroes BBQ lunch on Pacific at 11, and the Navy League Gala at the Admiral theater at 6PM the Parade Grand Marshall and Gala Guest speaker is VADM Nora Tyson, Commander Third Fleet. We are seeking NL members to ride the Safe Boat in the Parade. The Month is capped by the Memorial Day Ceremony on the Turner Joy at 10 AM on Monday May 29. The Featured Speaker is Capt Douglas Munz, Commanding Officer Navy Operational Support Center Kitsap. Come out and have some fun!

I am actively seeking a volunteer photographer and a volunteer fundraiser chairman to enable some fun events our membership committee is planning.
