We invite our friends to join us for our 85th Anniversary dinner celebration at the USCG base in Boston, MA. The dinner will include guest speakers, a presentation on the history of the program, a variety of raffle/auction prizes (items to be announced in the next few weeks). There will also be an accordion performance by Gary Sredzienski. Gary will be undertaking a fundraising swim in Boston Harbor this coming winter to support our program.
