USS MAINE BASE MEETING SCHEDULE for 2017
Meeting dates are usually every month on the 3rd Sunday, at 1:00 PM (12:30 PM in the winter). The Base meets after parades at their locations; at restaurants; and jointly with Thresher Base at events of mutual interest in Maine, such as the Thresher Memorial Service in April each year. The Base Holland Club Induction meeting and Christmas Social meeting will be at American Legion Post #205. However, the Base has recently severed its relationship with Post #205. The latter mentioned two meetings will be elsewhere in 2018.
Any date is subject to change by approval of the Base Officers. Information concerning a change in this schedule will be disseminated to the membership as soon as possible by email, on this page, and on the revolving banner on the Home page.
