May 21: Armed Forces Festival Navy League Gala Extravaganza
Join us for the Annual Navy League Gala to
honor our Military and recognize our community and political leaders. Each year, as the finale
to Armed Forces celebrations in Bremerton, our
Navy League Council honors the local military
commands by hosting the only black tie event,
aside from formal military balls, in the area. The
Grand Marshall of the Armed Forces Day Parade
is traditionally the guest of honor and this year,
VADM Johnny Wolfe, Director of Strategic Systems Programs, will be our guest speaker.
Additionally, as part of the evening,
our council presents a special, annual
award to the Trident submarine crew
who has achieved the top marks in battle efficiency. Competition
is very competitive and this award is coveted among the boats
homeported at Naval Base Kitsap. Our council started this trophy bowl many years ago and now a similar award is provided
in Kings Bay, Georgia to a submarine that is homeported on the
The Bremerton-Olympic Peninsula Navy League Gala is a significant social event of the year in Bremerton and each year we recognize very special people for their outstanding contributions to our council and the military. Guests will have
the opportunity to meet and mingle with one another prior to and following dinner and the program. Alejandro will perform Flamenco guitar after the official ceremony.
Numerous business and community leaders join us for this recognition ceremony. You do not want to miss this year’s Gala at the Bremerton Conference Center and it could sell out early.
