How exciting to be in Savannah and apart of such a wonderful group of people in the Savannah Navy League!  Are you ready for a new, fun year of moving forward and stepping up to help? We’d love to have you …. “Learn the ins and outs” of all that our local Navy League is doing and the support and awards we give out. It’s fun, fantastic, and full of new learning experiences. I’d love to hear from you with ideas and even  help in our liaison area, our gift area, our speaker’s program, and yes, even this wonderful newsletter.  Contact any of us and, together, we can “figure it out!”
