Navy Week is coming to Salinas from August 2nd through the 9th!
For those of you that are not sure what Navy Weeks are, they consists of a series of events designed to tell the Navy story: what the Navy does, why it’s important, and what opportunities exist in today’s Navy.
Salinas Navy Week 2009 is packed with events demonstrating the mission of the Navy and our proud heritage. These events could include Blue Angels, "Leap Frog" Parachute Team, and Navy Band performances, Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Dive Tank, SEAL Accelerator, SEAL Fitness Challenge, Navy TACH Demos and Flyovers, Blue Angels F/A-18 Flight Simulator, Accelerate Your Life Experience (AYLE) Simulator and Navy Theme-Wrapped Suburban all intent to give the public a personal look at the men and women of the Navy serving throughout the world in different roles.
Their will be a Flag Officer as our spokesperson. In addition to the Admiral, there could be guest appearances from a namesake crew, the Navy Blue Angels, Navy "Leap Frog" Parachute Team, Navy Band and other outstanding local Sailors.
N4M is not sponsoring this event, but if you're interested in coordinating something special with fellow N4M members, here's some Do's and Don'ts to keep in mind :)
DO get involved with Navy Weeks.
- You are encouraged to participate in Navy Week activities when appropriate.
- If you want to get involved with the Navy coordinators, your group should appoint a "spokesperson" to coordinate with the Navy. (This will alleviate multiple calls on the same topic.). The Navy Week points of contact can be found on www.navyweek.org. Go to the schedule and click on the city that you are interest in. The point of contact for that city's Navy Week will be listed.
DO NOT independently contact the flag officers or VIP participants involved in your town's Navy Week, but do work through the appointed Navy Week points of contact listed on www.navyweek.org
