Dear Members and Friends,Couple of special Navy League days coming up Friday August 14 and Saturday August 15. All invited!It starts Friday August 14 with the Pacific Central Region's 2009 Annual Coast Guard Luncheon and Awards Presentation. Awardees within the 11th Coast Guard District at various commands ashore and afloat. Possibly a special award or two as well. See the information provided by Jeanne Sharkey below.Next the Pacific Central Region will hold its annual National Directors Nominating Committee meeting to select nominees for 2010 National Directors from this region. If interested talk to Don Hale or myself. It means attending the National Convention in 2009 and Board of Directors meeting in 2010 and serving on a national committee. This meeting takes place in an adjoining room to luncheon and if interested you need to get a Navy League biography into Evan Baker then be there for an interview. A tried and proven procedure; like I say talk to Don or myself if you desire more information. Don't hesitate if you can make the commitment.We will figure out something to do for the rest of the afternoon for those attending - USS HORNET Museum a possibility. Maybe see the MARAD and MSC ships also located in Alameda. Maybe find a motel room and check in.Then that evening at Pacific Merchant Marine Council Director and Alameda Council President Sam Sause's home in Alameda will be the Pacific Central Region Reception. Always a fine social occasion and great opportunity to talk with officers, directors, and active members of other councils. Usually enough food and drink to make it not necessary to go out for dinner afterwards.Then early Saturday morning the Pacific Central Region meeting takes place nearby with various speakers and workshops. This too is worth attending. It concludes with a luncheon and speaker. More details on these as information is obtained.Right now, calendar them on your personal calendar and send in the luncheon money for the Coast Guard Awards Luncheon as presented below.Anchors Aweigh,Phelps____________ _________ _________
