Chapter Events

Fear The Goat
Chapter provides activities that generally fit within one of three categories:  Social Activities, Service-related Activities, and Social/Educational Activities.  The following lists within each category provide a sampling of what members and interested alumni experience during each year.  These events provide the opportunity to ‘retell old tales’ (usually with much embellishment) among the various classes present, enjoy each other’s company and camaraderie, and learn something or perform some useful service to the community and the greater Naval Academy family.

Monthly breakfasts at the Holiday Inn in Dumfries (just off Rte.234 and I-95), from 0700-0830 so folks can get to work.  These have been well attended as the speaker list has been impressive. These events are normally held on the first Friday of each month unless rescheduled.
