Whaling Days Parade

Shipmates,

Just a note to remind folks that this Saturday is the Whaling Days Parade in Silverdale. The muster time is between 0930 and 1000. As we will not be stepping off until appx 10340, you may want to wait inside Kitsap Mall until making your way to the float.

We will be joined by crewmembers of the USS Providence and we are, as usual, one of the only Military/Veteran units in the parade.

I do have concerns about the heat. The prediction is very sunny with around 90 degree heat. Please be sure to have sun screen and head coverage. Also remember to hydrate. We will have water available, but it’s probably not a great day to imbibe too much! at least not until after the parade.

This is the debut of the new float in Silverdale, and it will be a wonderful opportunity to remind folks of who and what we are, and to recruit along the way.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, July 30 for Whaling Days!

-Base Commander
