Field Day volunteers completed a great deal of much-needed work in March and November 2015, as well as other groups such as the Navy Reservists from Shreveport LA during their most recent work weekend of 8 -11 January. Additionally, our local volunteers continue to come out to help throughout the year. Gun Mounts 51 and 52 (and surrounding decks), as well as the top of the Navigating Bridge (Gun Director, Signalman's Shelter, and deck areas) are looking better than ever. These are just a few of the areas we continue to work on as weather and volunteer staffing permit.
With the holidays behind us (Mardi Gras is early this year on February 9th), we will be holding regular Saturday workdays starting Saturday, February 14th. You don't have to wait for a Saturday to volunteer! Please come out any day of the week! We have folks out daily doing all sorts of things. Some come out once a week, some come out 2 or 3 days a week. We welcome everyone's help and hard work.
