TMS is once again proud to welcome visitors and U.S. servicemen and women to 2017 Fleet Week Port Everglades! One of our favorite events of the year, Fleet Week Port Everglades brings U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard vessels to our port for a week of community activities, celebrations and to honor the brave sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who serve in our armed forces.
TMS is proud to be a long time supporter of Fleet Week Port Everglades. This year we’re honored to once again sponsor the Salute to Women in the Military Luncheon on May 4th. It’s been our pleasure to sponsor this event the last several years – we love bringing together women from our armed services and the private sector to connect as mentors, professional colleagues and of course build friendships! With so many women selecting careers in the military and advancing to senior management positions, this event is a great way to highlight the female and male leaders who are helping to create advanced opportunities for women in the military.
Vessels begin to arrive on May 1st and activities will run through May 7th. Some of our favorite events each year are the Resolve Marine Damage Control Olympics, the Salute to Women in the Military Luncheon (of course!) and the Take a Hero Fishing event. Each year Fleet Week is filled with activities and events, many of which are open to the public, some require advanced tickets. You can find a full schedule of activities at: http://www.browardnavydaysinc.org/schedule.html.
Looking forward to seeing you out and about in support of our troops and our maritime community this week!
