Special Event July 13th on Battleship North Carolina The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial

Special Event July 13th on Battleship North Carolina

The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial

43 SENCLAND Members enjoyed a potluck super on the grounds of the Battleship Park and then boarded the ship for the Thalian Association Community Theatre production. We were fortunate to have very comfortable weather and a great view of Historic Wilmington Waterfront from the fantail of the ship. Special Events Coordinator Ed Sullivan played host and organizer for the event and did a great job making sure everyone was welcomed, feed, escorted and entertained for the evening. It is another example of camaraderie within our active Chapter. Look for more special events in the future.
