Greetings to all my Sea Scouts and Sea Scout Families

As we enter the New Year, we have a chance to reflect back on a century of Sea Scouts and the visions of James Wilder and Thomas Keane who best envisioned the growth of the program. The Sea Scouts have come a long way, encountering high seas and stormy weather to arrive at our Centennial port.

In our Centennial year, we have a number of celebrations, commemorations, as well as a host of fun activities to attend. 

View Telegraph here.

We can start with the New England Flotilla Rendezvous at Fort Trumbull on July 13, followed shortly with the Chesapeake Flotilla Baltimore Harbor Centennial Event on July 20. For the five Northeast Region sailing teams attending the prestigious 2012 Koch Cup there will be a
grand celebration during the international regatta. The Liberty Flotilla will hold a week long celebration beginning August 12, with a full day commemoration on August 17 for the Amochol Sea Scout Camp, the oldest and longest running Sea Scout camp in America {1932-1962}. On September 8, the Liberty Flotilla in conjunction with the Greater New York Council will host a Sea Scout Awareness Day.

I am sure that more Centennial events will be filed and approved as we head into the summer.

One thing is certain Sea Scouts will continue to thrive and grow with the help of our young adults in the program and through the ongoing mentoring by our senior leaders.

The vision of Wilder and Keane has been passed on and we will see a stronger future and solid program. All that matters now is what's ahead, coming together and sustaining the recognition of the past into our future.

Best Regards
