The meeting will be in the private dining room at the rear of Grandma’s Table Restaurant, 1700 Douglas Road, Montgomery. You do not need to be a member of the Navy League, or have a reservation, to attend the meeting. The general public is welcome.
A reception will begin at 5:15 p.m. followed by dinner at 6 p.m. The dinner includes a choice of three entrees (fish, chicken or beef), soup or salad, dinner rolls, vegetables, dessert and nonalcoholic drink. The cost is $20 all-inclusive (alcoholic drinks can be purchased separately). A fourth, lower-cost entree, a dinner salad, may be purchased for $12. It includes soup, dinner rolls, dessert and nonalcoholic drink.
The after-dinner speaker will be Lt. Col. Vincent K. Catich, retired from the U.S. Air Force, who will speak on "My 15 Years Flying the U-2 Spy Plane." He will discuss his early naval flying career, his transfer to the Air Force flying the U-2 spy plane, and discuss the plane and its missions which contributed so significantly to intelligence gathering in support of our nation’s security.
The Navy League is a civilian organization started by President Teddy Roosevelt to provide civilian support the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and Sea Cadets.
The Aurora Council is having a membership drive, and will pay half of the first year’s dues for new members. This is an excellent opportunity to attend an interesting event, and determine whether you would like to join permanently. For more information, call Leonard Wass at 630-816-7612.
