Keep in mind that Broward Navy Days maintains a year-round presence in our community and is not going away. There will be welcoming events and shore leave activities for visiting Navy and Coast Guard ships throughout the year. We will support the activities of the U.S. Southern Command and Coast Guard Station Fort Lauderdale. Broward Navy Days will participate in the commissioning ceremonies of new Navy ships and Coast Guard cutters in South Florida and the change of command ceremonies for the local Navy and Coast Guard commands. This year, and every year, we place special emphasis on honoring our many veterans for their service to this country. This includes our Salute To Veterans luncheon, Pearl Harbor memorial service, and the Legion of Honor Ceremony to honor World War II veterans with France's highest decoration, dating back to 1802.
Please don't forget about us. Broward Navy Days is a private, nonprofit organization. We do not receive governmental funding or financial support from a national affiliation. Our funding comes from sponsorships, special events, and tax-deductible contributions from people like you. That's why I urge you to become a member at this critical time. Memberships add up to support the biggest and best local military appreciation effort in our area.
Giving is easy. You can download a membership form and pay by check or go to Broward Navy Days Website and pay by credit card or Pay Pal. Thank you for your support of our important mission,
Mary Anne Gray President & Executive Director."
