A Christmas Message from your Navy League Council President

2008.- 11.24.  Reyes.jpg

Dear member/friend of the US Navy League Madrid Council,

Please find below a letter from Luis San Miguel, our Madrid Council President.

Also above  you will find  a seasonal image produced by Captain (retd.) Marcelino González for the Navy League.

May I also take this opportunity to wish you a Happy Christmas and all the best for 2018,

-Mal.

We have had a busy year in the Navy League Madrid Council with 8 dinners, our May Cocktail (which this year took place in the US Deputy Chief of Mission´s residence) and our Gala Ball.

In addition, in July we sponsored a trip by the Cadet of the Year from the Spanish Naval Academy in Marin to the USA where the Navy League chapters in Washington D.C. (Annapolis) and New York City (Coast Guard) hosted him.

 
As usual, we take a break in December and there is no dinner this month. Our next dinner will be on Thursday January 25th when Miguel Angel Morrell of Airbus Defence & Space will be our speaker. I´m sure many of you know Miguel and look forward to hearing him speak.

I want to thank all our members (both corporate and individual) for their support. Without you we would not be able to host so many events and support members of both the US and Spanish sea services.

I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and the Best for the New Year.

Fondly

Luis San Miguel
