For the good of the Order:

use as a static display – Galin brought up that the float is a valuable recruiting tool for the base when used as a static display at events like the World War II event which had over 7,000 attendees.

static display board(s) – It was suggested that a board be created explaining the sub float and what it represents.

repair/replacement of flags & flag poles – The hundred-year banner needs to be replaced and also one of the poles.

repair by Freightliner - Around the 15th of November Freightliner will do the repairs after all the parades.

Tim brought up the discussion

2018 USSVI Convention cruise – Oct 21-28, 2018 www.ussvicruise.com/ - The web site listed has all the information. You will need a passport if you plan to attend. USSVI will probably move the web site listed to a link on the USSVI site in the future.

Christmas dinner – cater or pot luck? – Karla asked those in attendance if they would prefer to have the Christmas dinner catered or have a pot luck. Those in attendance voted to have it catered.

Bob Wells wants to donate his submarine books to the base. Base will pick up. Clutch and I plan to go in September (not 9/14 or 9/20) (Tolson) – Frank mentioned that he would plan on going.

Open discussion from floor

George brought in a plaque that he had Vic Vanhorn create. It has the USS Remora (SS-487) and the Maker’s Mark distillery names inscribed. The plaque will be presented to the Marker’s Mark distillery.

Bob Frier said that Don Crinkey thanked the base for the card he received.

Frank is not going to order the USSVI calendars like he did last year. If you would like a calendar you will need to let Frank know so that he can get it ordered. He is only ordering for those that request a calendar.
