Annual Change of Watch Ceremony 1800 at Embassy Suites, Bloomington

Details:  The annual Change of Watch is a fun ceremonial event where we “change out” our old bridge (think leadership team) and welcome in the new bridge for the 2019-2020 Watch Year.  We also hand out awards from the prior year for both achievements and mishaps (think Balsa Anchor or Bobber Awards).  This is a great opportunity to have some food and drinks while getting to know your fellow members.  We would love to see you there.  The event/dinner is made available for the reduced rate of $50 per person.  Attire: Bow Tie or Business Casual
