Another Exciting NCMA Annual Christmas Party
On December 6th, the NCMA
Christmas Party was held at the
Drydock Club. The Live Music
was again presented by Dino
Seretis with the “Yankee
Swap” gift exchange. Bill Welch
was awarded “NCMA Member of
Year” for 2014. Bill lent his help to many volunteer events such as Craddock
Little League, Southeastern Food Bank, and our various clean-up days.
Congratulations and many thanks to Bill for his dedication and hard work! Also
in attendance were Admiral Rick Berkey and wife Camille along with our SY
Commander Scott Brown and his wife Missy. Our spouses and new members were
also a big part of our annual party.

NNSY NCMA – “September 27th In-reach Volunteer Work Day”
On Saturday, 27 September, a handful of NNSY
Naval Civilian Manager’s Association (NCMA)
Chapter volunteers worked to improve an inside
shipyard walkway. This path is used by a lot of
our fellow employees and active duty
‘customers’ who travel between the exterior
parking lot towards Building 705 and on to the
industrial area. This in-reach event involved
picking up debris, pulling weeds, seeping out,
composting and stashing trash. Volunteers also
made some minor brick pathway repairs making
it a bit safer for traversing in the evening.

November
Meeting
Featured
our NEW
C100 –
Capt.
Scott M.
Brown
On the evening of October 25th, about 28 brave souls
embarked on the ex-USS WISCONSON moored at the
Nauticus Museum, downtown Norfolk, for a frightful
excursion on board the 'Haunted Ship'. This was our
Chapter's fall social event with several members from
Tidewater Chapter joining in for the fun.
Our tour required our 'search party' to navigate
through the darkened passages on a 'rescue' mission
complete with monsters banshees and other unsavory
ghouls impeding our way. The fun evening was
enjoyed by all and will likely become an annual
tradition. Proceeds from the event were used to
support the Museum.
Our November monthly chapter meeting involved
a 'Real Meal' (a quarterly initiative), which
included a complete Thanksgiving dinner with all
the trimmings supported by our local shipyard CoOperative. Our chapter officially welcomed our
newly-installed Shipyard Commander CAPT Scott
Brown, as our guest speaker. This event broke our
attendance record reaching over 70 members and
guests! CAPT Brown led a lively discussion on
core values, (honor, commitment and courage),
accountability and responsibility, as the
foundational basis for our continued shipyard
mission success.
