Bay Area Cutterman's Call - Thursday 01 November - Quinn's Lighthouse from 1530-1800

Shipmates, please join me on Thursday of this week for our monthly Cutterman's Call; Thursday 01 November at Quinn's Lighthouse, from 1530-1800. Dress is casual.

The primary agenda remains social, with the express purpose of handing down the cutterman experience from one generation to another through the sharing of sea stories.

Please spread the word to active, reserve, auxiliary, retired, aspiring, and supporting cuttermen. Spouses welcome too!

Note that we have a new distribution list This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it that allows us to send email to folks that cannot be added to the CG Global Address List. I encourage you to shift from the previous distribution list to this new one. Contact DCCS Garcia (in the Cc: line) to be added to our new list.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Bay Area Chapter

RADM Sullivan, Forcecom Commander, hosted the San Francisco Bay Area’s second Cuttermen Call on Friday 10 Dec.  Approximately 40 cuttermen, from SN to VADM, attended the call held at Quarters C on Yerba Buena Island.  The food, view, and company were all outstanding.  VADM Manson Brown, Pacific Area Commander, was present and shared his satisfaction that the Coast Guard and the Bay Area have begun a cuttermen association.  He offered his lasting support for the long overdue and worthy cause to honor our sea going service and its cuttermen.

Following several hours of shared camaraderie, the participants got down to business and nominated the following Pro Tem Officers to lead the group in establishment of an official local chapter:

President
CAPT Kelly Hatfield, CGC WAESCHE

Vice President
LCDR Steve Adler,  CGC BERTHOLF

Treasurer
MCPO Lisa Starliper, PAC-6

Secretary
GMC Michael Phillips, CGC WAESCHE

The new officers have wasted no time in moving ahead with the creation and National Association approval of an official local chapter.  The necessary paperwork has been drafted and official signatures required are being obtained.  The official request will be sent to the National Association just after the new-year.

Congratulations to the Pro Tem Officers and we look forward to your future endeavors in moving both the local and national organizations forward.
