CARING & SHARING / THANKSGIVING
USSVI-Groton Base BUILDING FUND

    The Groton Base is still the only Base in the organization that has their own club house. Groton Base is very fortunate, and grateful to Joe Negri for what we have today. We would be remiss if we didn't mention that "The Club" has survived all these years through the many donations, and many hours of hard work, and tender loving care that many members have donated over the years. Renovations and improvements are ongoing. "The Club" has always been, and continues to be maintained by dedicated volunteers who selflessly devote their time and efforts towards keeping the building cleaned, and maintained for the rest of the membership.  This is in keeping with our Creed to "Perpetuate the memory of our shipmates" by maintaining a place for all of us to gather amongst all the memorabilia and reminisce about the past and discuss the future. Remember there is no donation too small, they all count. Your support and donations are appreciated.
