Broward Council Members and Friends
Another Fleet Week has just ended, and we are now left with fond memories of those we have met and the many activities in which we participated. One of the highlights for our Council was the JO party at Briny's Pub on Riverwalk. What a great evening and large turn out from the Coast Guard, Marines, Navy and other units! Then among many other events, our Council raised funds with the sale of water and sodas to the public. These earnings help us support the many ships and units we have adopted. Many thanks to those who volunteered their time and resources to help make this 28th Fleet Week so successful.
Thanks to Marianne Giambrone and Tom Carney, we now have a tri-fold flyer that we can give out to prospective members. The flyer identifies our Mission, Objectives, and lists the many military units and youth programs we support. There is an application on the back page for anyone who might like to join us.
Our next dinner meeting will be at the STAR Center in Dania. This is an impressive operation that provides training to maritime officers. The Merchant Marines compose one of the four branches supported by the Navy League and this event gives us a better understanding of the vital role they serve. Council member Graeme Holman will be our host. There will be a buffet and tour of the facility and simulator. You won't want to miss this unique meeting.
And finally, I am pleased to announce that the Broward County Council of the Navy League has been selected to receive the Meritorious Council award. Meritorious Council is a national recognition and much thanks to Marianne and all who helped us achieve such a distinguished award.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the STAR Center.
