APRIL 2019 EVENT INFO

EVENT LEAD/POC INFO FOR POST MEMBERS
Navy Week 2019
Date: 1-7 April
Location: Wilmington
U.S. Navy

The Port City has been selected as one of the hosts for a 2019 Navy Week, according to a release from the Navy Office of Community Outreach.

Navy Week, which will bring “sailors from across the country” to Wilmington from April 1-7, is the Navy’s outreach program and allows “the Navy to build and strengthen ties to the community,”the release said.

The week will feature senior leadership from the military branch, sailors serving on the U.S.S. Constitution, naval divers and explosive ordnance disposal teams and other programs, the release stated.

“Navy Weeks are designed to help Americans understand why having a strong Navy is critical to the American way of life,” said Cmdr. Linda Rojas, director of the Navy Office of Community Outreach.

Navy Weeks focus a variety of outreach assets, equipment and personnel on a single city for a week-long series of engagements with key influencers and organizations representing all sectors of the market, the release stated.

The Port City has hosted the commissioning of Naval vessels in the past, including the U.S.S. North Carolina submarine in 2008 and the U.S.S. Gravely destroyer in 2010.

Wilmington, of course, is also home to the Battleship North Carolina.

New and fresh ideas are welcome! Please bring your ideas and a friend and come work with a group at the Farm! For anyone who would like to create a craft on your own and donate it to Our Heroes, that would also be greatly appreciated.
