Chapter President’s Update 12-01-2017

Posted: 12/1/2017

We will gather for the Army – Navy Party, Saturday, December 9th 3:00 at Paul’s Deli in New Town, Williamsburg to watch the game and cheer on our team.  Since Navy will be the only major sporting event on television, we will have plenty of room for everyone to bring family and friends.  It is a pay as you go food and drink menu with plenty of choices and great ambiance.

For 2018 we are planning a VA Peninsula Chapter event every other month.  We will vary the locations up and down the Peninsula to encourage new members and explore new venues.  We invite anyone interested in taking the lead or assisting on any event to step up.  We also encourage you to promote the VA Peninsula Chapter to alumni who may in the area but are not currently active in the Chapter.  We offer a way to connect with old friends and meet new ones on the greater Peninsula.

Tentative 2018 Schedule:

January will begin the year with a VA Peninsula Chapter organizational luncheon to review our current status, discuss ideas and refine plans.  We will meet at Center Street Grill, 5101 Center St, Williamsburg at 1:00 Saturday January 20th.

March – we are working details for either a luncheon, brunch or dinner at James River Country Club in Newport News.

May – We are arranging a Gauthier Vineyard tour and wine tasting in New Kent County where we will invite the Hampton Roads Chapter (HRC) to join us again.  This tour continues to receive rave revues.  May is also the Plebe Recognition Dinner in Norfolk hosted by HRC.

July – To escape the summer heat, we will be spearheading some family fun at the new indoor golf tavern, Revolution Golf and Grille, 1430 High St, Williamsburg.

September – Congressman Wittman (R-VA) luncheon at Patriots Colony in Williamsburg.  Congressman Wittman is President of the Academy’s Board of Visitors and a key member of the House Shipbuilding Caucus.

Oct/Nov – Founders’ Day Luncheon, Brunch or Dinner at Riverside in Old Yorktown.

December – Army / Navy Gaem 2018.

Please forward suggestions and questions anytime.
