      While surfing e-Bay for Navy League items earlier this month I came across the program of the council's 50th anniversary of the founding of the League. The League started with the NYC Council. It was a very attractive bound hardcover book! I notified Rick that there was only a few hours left in the auction. He ended up with the high bid!
      A few years ago the NYC council had a mid-day AMMV memorial service at Manhattan's St. Patrick's Cathedral. I have approached Dean Alan Jones of San Francisco's Grace Cathedral about doing a similar mid-day service May 22nd - National Maritime Day. Don't put it on your calendar yet - it is not in concrete. Anyone care to chair this event?
      Still working on assembling the 1st quarter 2008 PMMC Captain's Call. If you have material that should be included in the newsletter or posted to our website, please forward it to me.
      Our PMMC Spring Luncheon 1130, Monday, 10 March aboard the O'BRIEN is coming together nicely. Save the date and invite friends.
