Each year at the beginning of June, the Club holds its annual Welcome Aboard Picnic to welcome the incoming class of plebes, their parents, and their families. In 2015, that event was held 20 June, on a beautiful sunny day in Davidsonville, MD.
We had Lieutenant Colonel Kohmuench, 5th Battalion Commander and OIC for Plebe Summer as our featured guest. Also addressing the incoming plebes and their families were Marty Coleman, representing the Class of 1969 and the Another Link in the Chain program, Elizabeth Beedenbender from the USNA Alumni Association, Mark Hakun, President of the Annapolis USNA Alumni Chapter, and Darryl Christian, representing the Navy League.
We enjoyed some awesome BBQ, provided courtesy of Bill Kraus at Mission BBQ, and iced coffee and other beverages, provided courtesy of Tim Hoffman of The Coffee Mess and a marvelous cake at the end courtesy of Wegmans grocery. We thank all of you for your generosity in supporting our Welcome Aboard.
Our next Welcome Aboard Picnic will be held in June of 2016. Watch this space for details!
