A Christmas Message from Molly Long – President of the US Navy League, Madrid Council

December 2015

Dear members and friends,

As I reflect on the 50th year anniversary of the Madrid council, I am grateful for belonging to such an amazing service organization! I have had the opportunity to mingle with His Majesty the King, have dinner with the Minister of Defense and talk to some of the most important civilian and military leaders in Spain and the United States. Who could ask for more as a volunteer leader? What an honor for me to lead the Board of Directors as we work monthly to make our events and dinners interesting to our members. In the end it’s you our members and friends who attend the dinners and show your support to the Madrid council. Thank you.

I would love to hear your feedback on our activities so please don’t hesitate to send me an email with your ideas and thoughts! Together we can all make the 51st anniversary even better!

On January 21st we are honored to bring to the podium Ambassador Maria Mercedes de la Guardia de Corró of Panamá .This will be a great opportunity to learn more about the historical and commercial ties between our countries and especially interesting to hear news about the two Panama Canals, the new one being built and the one in operation now.

As we celebrate the holiday season, remember to give thanks to all the military service members serving our countries and who may not be able to celebrate with family and friends.

Least we not forget in our prayers all those affected by the terrorist attacks in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Let’s be confident that the world leaders make the right decisions for peace.

Along with the Board of Directors, I wish everyone a wonderful holiday and a safe and happy New Year!

Sincerely,

Molly Long
