Our 40th Anniversary Year – 1984-2024

The U.S.S. Nokomis was founded in June of 1984. We've had hundreds of meetings and events, dozens of celebrations, and uncountable hours of good times. A few hundred people have visited our Club and more than a few have remained long term. We've had romances and a few marriages, births and deaths, challenges and accomplishments. It's remarkable that any organization can last this long, it's time to celebrate.

It's a year-long celebration with a list of happenings:

  • On May 4th we held our Celebration Dinner and Dance.  For a meeting summary
    • Read the post 40th Anniversary Celebration was Fun!
    • Mary had some Challenge Coins made for our occasion - if you didn't make the Dinner and Dance, check with Mary to see if there's one available for you!
  • At the actual anniversary date we'll hold the Anniversary Picnic - June Meeting and 40th Anniversary Picnic NEXT MONTH
  • In the meantime, and before the Picnic you can get your swag - Scott's set up ussnokomis.square.site with mugs, t-shirts, and more - directly sent to your home, no need to wait for a meeting.

40th Anniversary Celebration was Fun!

We had a wonderful evening at Midland Hills Country Club on Saturday (May the 40th be with you!).
