November President’s Message

The Navy Birthday dinner turned out to be a special event akin to those we have had in the past.  Perhaps we are seeing our way out of the pandemic doldrums.  November is a celebration of the Marine Corps Birthday and it has also, in the past, enjoyed large and enthusiastic crowds.

November the 9th, is the Marine Corps luncheon which is routinely attended by notable Marine Corps vets in the area.  We will certainly celebrate the Marine Corps with the same vigor and enthusiasm as we did the Navy and the Naval Academy, so try to join us for this tribute.

Those of us who tune in for the weekly Happy Hour continue to enjoy the discussions that we have and the friendship of our fellow alumni, so join us knowing that you are always welcome.  The information on the Happy Hour is below.

The Council Meeting being planned for November may or may not happen, because of the availability of members on the planned dates and/or the availability of sites at which to have the gathering.  More on that later as the situation evolves.

Navy is playing some good football, but lacking some desired results.  So, let’s just say we are prepping for the Big One.  The Army – Navy Game is on December 10th, when we will gather at Big Al’s in Beaverton, so set the date aside to join us, and bring us the victory which will define a winning season.  I will be home for that and hope to see you there.


Go Navy,

John Adams ‘69, CDR, USN (Ret)
