Presidents Corner January 2019

Jan 2019 Presidents Corner

Happy New Year!!

The Christmas decorations are put away and the last of the New Years Bowl games have been played. Now its time for your Navy League Council to plan the next year. The officers and board members will be meeting on Jan 19 to plan out our council agenda. If you have ideas for activities for the Council to consider, please shoot me an email with your suggestions.

December was high lighted by our Council elections at the luncheon. I am honored that you have voted me to serve as your President again for this next year and gave your affirmation for the officers and board members to continue on in 2019. We welcome ret. Capt Tom Zwolfer to the board.

At our luncheon, our council and Capt Schrader, Commanding Officer of the Kitsap Naval Base, recognized two of Kitsap Naval Bases’ sailors with Eagles for their achievements during the last year. We were also honored to have Megan Churchwell, the Curator the Puget Sound Naval Museum at Bremerton, as our guest speaker for the luncheon. She told us that the museum IS doing well and expanding and they are always looking for volunteers.

And speaking of volunteers, its not too early to pencil in on your calendars The Washington State Science and Engineering Fair March 29 & 30. Your Council is one of the largest providers of judges of the Fair. Let’s keep that tradition going!

I would like to announce that we will have a recognition dinner at the Kitsap Golf and Country Club on January 26, at 6 PM. Capt Alan Schrader will be our guest speaker. If you are interested in attending, Contact Realty Station at (360-377-5699). Cost will be $45 per person.
