Each year, the Propeller Club, Port of Norfolk, with our fellow clubs across the country, celebrates National Maritime Day. Established by Congress in 1933, National Maritime Day honors the work and contributions of past Merchant Seamen who endured the perils of the sea during times of war and peace, and celebrates and recognizes those who proudly carry on that tradition today.
This year’s commemorative event, which will be held from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on Thursday, May 19 at the Elizabeth River Pavilion & Deck, located behind Nauticus and the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center, will include the laying of a memorial wreath and an informal reception with live music, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. In the past, over 250 people have attended.
In addition to your participation, we would greatly appreciate your financial support as a sponsor of National Maritime Day 2016.
