DARK AGES: USNA definition:
This is the parents club annual Fall meeting.
A chance to meet the new members and get together as parents of our wonderful mids at the Naval Academy.
Activities involved will be stuffing the Fall/Halloween envelopes (personalized notes and gift cards are included) and the birthday cards for our midshipmen belonging to the parents club.
One discussion topic will be the Parents Club Leadership Conference that was held at USNA 9/20-9/21/2017. Carline Fleig, John Lee and I represented the PCCNE and we learned a lot about some of the inner workings of the Naval Academy, which we will be glad to share with you during the meeting.
If you are interested, you can view the conference materials which are posted on the USNA Alumni Assocation website at https://www.usna.com/page.aspx?pid=669 . You will find a wealth of information there.
This is one of the milestones for families with midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy. The first is I-Day, which has already passed. It’s a great time to visit your midshipman in their new summer whites and see inside Bancroft Hall, or Mother B.
