Navy League and Silver Strand Chapter of MOAA Summer Concert in Park Get Together

The Coronado Summer Concert Series is back and the Navy League and Silver Strand Chapter of MOAA are planning to attend some of them this summer. Come join us for our first event on June 12th at Spreckels Park. The band will be the Marine Band of San Diego and the show starts at 6 PM.

Let’s plan to meet around 5 PM at the corner of 6th Street and C Ave, as we have in the past. Bring chairs and tables if you have them. We’re asking Navy League members to bring a dessert and MOAA members to provide snacks, drinks, or a side dish to share. Bring your own alcoholic drinks. Since this is the Marine Band, the Marine Corps League is also planning to attend, and we asked them to join us.

This will be a great opportunity to get together with friends, get to know other MOAA / Navy League members and their families along with other members of the Marine League.

If you are hungry that night and looking for a little more to eat, the Coronado VFW on the corner of 6th and Orange Ave is serving a $20 steak dinner from 5 PM to 7 PM. No reservations are necessary.

If you have any questions, please contact Joyce Murphy (Navy League rep) at [email protected] or 757-642-5881 or Rob Bayer (MOAA rep) at [email protected] or 619-251-2946.
