Base events and stuff

Hello Bremerton Base Members,

      I hope you are enjoying the Thanksgiving weekend. I just wanted to address a few items before our next meeting.

Our next meeting is our annual Christmas party. Saturday, December 15th @1100. Same venue as last year, short meeting, then the meal will be served at @1200. Menu will be pot roast and ham with sides and Caesar salad and desserts. There will also be donuts and bagels, coffee and water, and the bar will be available for additional beverages. Cost is $20.00 per person. COB is collecting payment, either send to National Office address (in Header), to him, his home address, or you can pay at the door. We do need a head count as soon as possible to inform Karen and her staff of how many to expect. Do not send cash in the mail.

  •  Our Membership Chairman Dennis Nardone has asked to remind Base Members it is that time of year for dues renewal. He will be sending e-mails and letters. Our Base is successful due to strong membership. I hope you will renew, and grab a shipmate and bring to a meeting. New members are always welcome. Thank you.

  • One last item. At the last e-board and general membership meeting, the idea to have our general membership meetings on Saturdays year round, was discussed and mentioned. At this time, we split the meetings between Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the year. It appears we have the same turnout as far as attendance both days. I am looking to stay consistent and have our meetings on Saturday, throughout the entire year. As of now, we have meetings on Saturdays, 7 out of 12 months as follows; 

  • October, November, December, January, February, March, and our annual picnic on Saturday. ( Our picnic has rotated, July-August)

  • April, May, June, August, September on Tuesdays.


 I understand we have parades and additional events in the summer, but I think it is doable, I am looking for feedback, positive and negative, on this topic. I would like to bring it to the table at the December E-board meeting. This is not my decision, but the decision of the membership and the E-Board. I just believe keeping our meeting consistent throughout the year will be better for the base. Just my opinion. Any questions or concerns, please contact me. I hope to hear from many of you. Thanks for your time. Be safe and see you soon.
