Spring Auction and First Class Flag Presentation

Posted: 3/20/2018
Congratulations to the Class of 2018 and their parents!
To show our appreciation for our graduating midshipmen, we will be hosting the annual Spring Auction/First Class Flag Presentation.  We look forward to presenting the club’s graduation gift of a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. It will be presented to our graduating First Class Midshipmen Parents in a beautiful custom cherrywood case handmade by Hank Brinzer whose son, Robert, graduated from the Naval Academy in 2001.  Each flag also comes with a special certificate commemorating the graduate’s accomplishments.
