NSA Mid-South, Millington, May 31, 2015:  The Memphis No. 119 chapter of the Navy Wives Clubs of America hosted their annual Officer Installation Dinner at St. William Catholic Church on Sunday, May 31.
The Regional President, Helen Davis, was in attendance to conduct the installation ceremony for the local chapter.  “It is an honor and a privilege to be asked to officiate this ceremony,” said Davis, during opening remarks.
The ceremony was followed by a potluck in which outgoing and incoming officers were presented with gifts and pins for their service and the incoming chairs were also announced.  Chapter President (second year), Lois Wilber beamed with pride as she commented, “I was blessed by being part of a dynamic board last year and I am blessed again with the changes to this year’s board. I am looking forward to all that we will do this year.”
Navy Wives Clubs of America, Inc. is our Country’s only non-profit national organization of Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard enlisted spouses.  Incorporated on June 3, 1936 in Long Beach, California the club has grown in chartered clubs throughout the world.  NWCA received a Federal Charter from the United States Congress in October 1984.  The purpose of NWCA is to unite all sea service enlisted wives into bonds of mutual friendship, assistance and welfare for their families, bases and communities in which they live.
There are currently thirty-three clubs throughout the United States.  NWCA’s Regular Membership is open to enlisted spouses of the Navy, Marine Corp and Coast Guard, active duty, retired, widowed or reserve.  We also extend membership to Members At Large who are no longer close to a club and we offer an Associate Membership to women not eligible for regular membership, but who are interested in the objectives and aims of the organization, which is educational and charitable.
Along with participating in the National Project (http://www.projecthealingwaters.org/) and Scholarship, the local Navy Wives Club, Memphis #119 chapter participates in Wreaths Across America, Naturalization Ceremonies, have adopted a child to help with school supplies in the Appalachian Mountain Range of Kentucky, hosts the We Care Supper (2nd Tuesday of each month on base) and supports Mother Theresa’s shelter and various other charitable organizations and programs in the local area.
The NWCA Memphis No. 119 chapter also hosts an Easter Egg Hunt, 4th of July parade, Holiday Party and Meet & Greets throughout the year. Upcoming events are promoted on their Facebook page at s/NWCAMemphis119.
