Fernandina Beach Golf Club
Buffet Style Lunch and VHP Raffle
$20 per person
The Amelia Island Museum of History is thrilled to invite you to its next Veterans History Project Luncheon on Tuesday, June 27th, at noon, at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club (2800 Bill Melton Rd). Special guest Dennie Pendergrass – a Vietnam Veteran and former Army lieutenant and engineer – will deliver a presentation on the vital work of the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Tracing its initial roots back to the American Revolution, the USACE as we know it today was formally established by Thomas Jefferson in 1802. The Army Corps of Engineers is one of the largest engineering, design, and construction management companies in the world, responsible for public works including canals, dams, flood protection, dredging, and beach nourishment. With a force of approximately 37,000 soldiers and civilians operating in over 130 countries, the USACE mission is to “deliver vital public and military engineering services; partnering in peace and war to strengthen our Nation’s security, energize the economy and reduce risks from disasters.” Join us as we learn about the fascinating history, function, and achievements of this very important organization, while you enjoy a buffet-style lunch prepared by the Fernandina Beach Golf Club, and a raffle with awesome prizes related to military history.
Tickets for this event will be available at the Amelia Island Museum of History (233 S. 3rd St) and at Ameliamuseum.org. Tickets must be purchased by Thursday, June 22nd. The cost is $20 per person. Proceeds benefit the Veterans History Project and the Amelia Island Museum of History. For more information contact Gray, at gray@ameliamuseum, or 904-261-7378 ext 102.
