This is probably one of best opportunities we have all year of promoting our base and encouraging other submariners to join and get involved.  Having a big turnout is CRITICAL!  


Put this on your calendars now and make plans to attend!

Nolensville Parade

Saturday November 8th

This is really a nice parade and I actually enjoyed it more than the Nashville parade.  It is relatively small and quaint, but it is a lot of fun.  This will be the 3rd year we have participated in the Nolensville Veterans Day events and parade.  Nolensville is a real nice small southern town just below Nashville and those of us that that participated in their events last year had a great time.    As promised here's the location & directions to the Nolensvile free Veterans breakfast & Veterans Day parade.

Breakfast runs from 8:30 AM to 10 AM

If you are going to participate in the breakfast, please fill out the form.
