On Thursday, May 10, 2017, the Camden-Kings Bay Navy League Council will host our Annual Sea Services Awards Banquet at the TRIPLEX on board Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay. We will be honoring the 30 top Sailors, Coast Guardsmen and a Marine stationed at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay and at the Coast Guard's Maritime Safety & Security Team in St Marys as the 2017 Sailors/Marine/Coast Guardsmen of the Year. 

This event recognizes the honorees for their accomplishments last year, and is an opportunity for our entire community to show our respect and appreciation for their hard work, dedication and service to our nation and our community. Our special guest at the Banquet will be Rear Admiral Mike Holland, commander, Submarine Group 10. We hope you will join us at this event to thank and recognize these fine young men and women for their outstanding service. 

Banquet tickets are $25 per person. The TRIPLEX doors will open at 6:00 p.m. A cash bar reception will be held from 6:00 to 6:45 p.m., followed by dinner. The dinner menu will be posted soon. 

As we do every year, we are asking Navy League members to sponsor a Sailor, Coast Guardsman or Marine of the Year for the evening. Sponsors will sit with command leadership and the honoree at the command table, and participate in the presentation of a commemorative plaque and gifts to the honoree and his/her spouse/significant other. 

Sponsors will also be included in a group photo with the honoree, spouse, command representatives, and RDML Holland. The cost of a Sponsorship is $50.00. Please contact Cheryl Aston to inquire about commands available for sponsorship. Sponsorship is fully tax deductible. 

Even if you are unable to attend the Banquet, we encourage and would welcome your sponsorship of either a deployed or transferred Sailor of the Year. 

Sponsoring an individual Sailor, Coast Guardsman or Marine isn't the only way to support this event. 

We are asking our members and the community to help fill the gift bags presented to each honoree. In addition to cash donations, if you own a business, please consider donating gift certificates, items from your business and other in-kind contributions of goods and services for the honorees (we would need 30 items). All cash donations go directly to purchasing plaques, gifts and other recognition for the honorees and their spouses. All donations are 100% tax deductible. 

Donors will be recognized in the commemorative program and at the Banquet at the following levels: 

ADMIRAL: $1,000 and above (includes four free tickets to the Banquet)

CAPTAIN: $500 - $999 (includes two free tickets to the Banquet)
