With our biggest honor event of the year under our belts, I wish to thank Kathy Howell, Chairman of the Commemorative Services Committee, and Gordon Blocker, our speaker, author and foremost expert on Samuel May Williams for their tremendous efforts in putting together an outstanding dedication ceremony for the Father of the Texas Navy, on this September 18th Texian Navy Day. Putting in countless hours with Gordon and Kathy was Andy Hall. Without the three of you, this event would not have been possible.
With this in our rear view mirror, we have one big event remaining, and that will be the annual meeting, and Texas Navy Dinner Dance at the Houston Yacht club on November 13th. Keep your calendars open for that one. It should be a great time, and will include a silent and possibly a live auction. All proceeds will benefit the Texas Navy Association.
In the meantime, we have multiple candidates for the three board positions that will be coming up for re-election. Their applications and bios were packages up and sent out to everyone. PLease read through them, and pick the best three to keep moving this organization forward. The ballots will be sent soon to all voting members of the Texas Navy Association. Results will be annouonced at the annual meeting.
I look forward to seeing you all at the November 13th!
Admiral James S. Tyson
