    At the dinner/meeting program on October 16th, we had the pleasure of a full house of 90+ guests enjoying professional fellowship and a guest speaker presentation by the new Fleet Maintenance Officer, RDML Bill Greene (USFF N43). Admiral Greene shared his perspective on some of his top priorities and concerns four months into the position, notably the demand signal for maintenance outpacing capacity, aligning contracting strategy to support future investment and surge, and on-time delivery out of both public and private yards. 

    Also, during the evening, we recognized and honored our Tidewater Section Chair of 2018-2019, Jessica Galassie, and the 3rd Quarter CY 2019 Engineer of the Quarter (EOQ) recipient, Damage Control Chief Petty Officer (Surface Warfare/Air Warfare) Anthony R. Pagliarini from USS VICKSBURG.  Anthony had his CO, XO and Chief Engineer joining him in a prideful show of support!

    ASNE Tidewater membership and friends were invited to the South Eastern Virginia Live Steamers (SEVALS) event at the home of Retired Vice Admiral Dave Architzel in Suffolk, Virginia on Saturday, October 19.

    There were several ride-on locomotives, and over a mile of train track around the property. The SEVALS group invited ASNE to get a good feel for steam engineering by providing an opportunity to learn about steam propulsion, and a chance to ride the railroad!  They highlighted a gas motor powered Engine, two electric battery powered engines, two-foot powered carts, and two hand powered carts to ride around the scenic property.

    Additionally, there was a decorated sixteen by twenty-foot O Gauge train layout to enjoy for those who preferred to “run the railroad” instead of “ride the railroad.”

    It was an enjoyable autumn day and we appreciate all those who came out to participate!

    ASNE President Mark Hugel, RADM, USN (Ret), kicked off the 2019-2020 dinner/meeting program on September 18, providing an update on the state of the Society, as well as his major priorities and challenges for his two-year term and beyond. He made an impassioned plea for a focus on membership, young professionals and   student outreach, driven principally through engagement at the local Section level.  Executive Director Dale “Kid” Lumme was also in attendance, making a special trip from ASNE headquarters in Washington, DC for this event. Thank you both for helping us kick-start the season!

    Before President Hugel spoke, Mr. Paul Siebeking was presented a special certificate of recognition.  One of the four (4) ASNE TW scholarships was named for Mr. Siebeking.  Additionally, Paul was acknowledged for 50 years of membership within ASNE!  Paul was deeply humbled to be honored and recognized for his achievements.

    Mike D’Amato, ASNE TW Programs Committee Co-Chair, gave a brief presentation of the ASNE-Sika 25th    Annual Build-A-Boat Challenge held in June 2019.  He thanked all those involved who helped make it a success.  The net proceeds from the event (over $7,000!) went toward ASNE scholarship funds and STEM grants.
