Rich with Traditions – Celebrating 225 years of the U.S. Coast Guard
It was an honor to be the 2015 General Chairperson for Yankee Homecoming, and I hope you all enjoyed this week of activities as much as I did.
When I chose my theme “Rich with Traditions – Celebrating 225 years of the U.S. Coast Guard” I had no idea how humbling it would be honoring the men and women that serve at our Coast Guard station, or what good friends I would meet during this past year.
With the help of the Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary we were able to share important safety tips for navigating our difficult waters of the Merrimack River, as well as share some special awards and gifts with the Station. Thank you to the Custom House and Ghlee Woodworth for providing a history of the Coast Guard and a special thank you to everyone that was able to attend our Coast Guard tours and take the time to say Happy Birthday and thank you to a Coast Guard member for their 225 years of service.
Our theme was focused on the Coast Guard this year, but I can not leave out our many other events and our volunteers who worked so hard making their events and our entire festival a success. I have said it many times over this past year but I can not say it enough. Thank you to everyone that volunteered, with your help we were able to put on an amazing 8 days of events. I could not have done this without your help and support.
Finally to everyone that came out to enjoy Yankee Homecoming – Thank You. We do this for our community and enjoy seeing our hard work appreciated by so many. As we wrap up 2015 and look forward to next year I hope to see some new faces at our volunteer meetings so you can see what a great group of volunteers we have.
