2012 Fireworks Sale
Those who have gone to the effort of contacting TNT fireworks have starting getting their $10 discount coupons, which if not used should be turned into the Fireworks Chairman so we can give it to other buyers to run their purchase up over $50, increasing Base share of the profits. If you do not intend to use the coupons, please turn them over to Mike Sullivan or leave them with the Fireworks stand, opening this Thursday, June 28th.
The fireworks stand will be located at its traditional spot in front of the QFC on Kitsap Way in Bremerton.
For the sales force, See the Watch list.
For everybody, please encourage your friends and neighbors to buy their fireworks at our stand, for submarine veterans and their children, and grandchildren will be supported by their purchases.

Bremerton Base Retrieves the Traveling Dolphins
Bremerton Base, with competition from the Seattle Base, showed up at the June 14th South Sound Base with 8 members and 1 guest to retrieve the Traveling Dolphins. All members got to tell a "true" sea story from their Navy experiences. They were Jim DeMott, Steve Corcoran, Hank Hollis, Bud Berg, Ralph Harris, Dutch Kaiser, Wayne Peterson and Red Bassler.
Western Region District 4 Commander John Mansfield, a South Sound Base member, was on hand to lead the competition. John is still searching for a relief, as he will need one if he does win the Western Region Director (an E-board Position) he is running for. Suggest you vote for John, as he will give the Northwest some clout at the national level.
Past National Commander and 2012 Election Master Pat Householder was also present and informed us about election procedures.
