Carnival at NWS Earle

Summertime Fun – Friday, July 15th 2022

A beautiful summer day with perfect temperatures and bright skies greeted over 200 people to the annual summer carnival at NWS Earle. Families and children were treated to the usual carnival delights, including face painting, tied-balloon animals, a bouncy fun-house, games, food, and music.  Children under 10 were provided with a “goody bag” and were able to participate in a raffle for a bike (one for boys and one for girls).

The carnival is one of the major events presented by MWR, Earle.  The department, headed by Mary Borree, is responsible for developing programs aimed at increasing sailor and family morale.

Our council is proud to be one of the major sponsors for this event. For this event, attaché’ Pete Engelman was on hand on to provide support (and helped sign in people).  Mary was most appreciative – she passed along thanks to the council for its continued support.

There will be 3 other major MWR events this year which the council will co-sponsor.  A Candyland game will be held on Sept 30.  The annual Fall Fest is scheduled for Oct 28.  And the granddaddy of all – Winterfest (Santa and all) will be held on Dec 9.

Anyone desiring to participate, or looking for more information should reach out to Pete Engelman or Steve Hutton.
