    Ahoy Members and Friends,
    How is your summer?
    We have some activities ahead I hope you will attend. First and foremost is our council's Arkansas Division Sea Cadet fundraiser Sunday afternoon, August 5, aboard the POTOMAC, see the attachment and message http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/message/1222. Do join us please. Donations, silent auction items or otherwise, most appreciated.
    Then there is a great Pacific Central Region event, Friday and Saturday, August 24 and 25. See the second attachment for information on it. Attendance is encouraged. I think you know I hold the region post Senior Vice President.
    If golf is one of your activities, join the fun at the Alameda and Oakland councils' day on the links in Alameda August 27, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS/message/1221. The council is again sponsoring a hole - look for our sign.
    In September we and our always welcome guests will most likely get together for lunch with a speaker or a panel of speakers. What do you think about returning to our home base aboard the SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN, dockside Pier 54, San Francisco?
    Then there is San Francisco Fleetweek in October, http://fleetweek.us. That brings me to the subject of this message - a fundraiser in support of the myriad of activities associated with Fleetweek. If you can swing the $100 tab, please attend - its a class act. There's $50 in the council treasury if you need it to attend. It is important to have council representation there. 
    Anyone interested in a "field trip" to the California Maritime Academy? I am thinking of the two state of the art ship simulators - the bridge and the engine room. Lunch with students, facility and staff a possibility. 
    Hey, this council is engaged in the Navy League and the maritime industry. Glad you are a part of it!   
    Do you have a friend or associate who might like to join the Navy League? We are always seeking new members. Lunch at our next council luncheon is complementary upon joining. I think we can still offer a three year new membership for $75. A one year membership is $50 and two annual renewals are $50 each - so that's quite a bargain.  
    Telephone me anytime. You can also keep up with me on Facebook. The council has a presence there as well though http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PMMC-NLUS remains primary for news and our extensive list of maritime links.
    Heave Ho,
