President's Remarks for the 2016 President's Inaugural Dinner
MG Peter J. Gravett, USA (Ret)
I offer a New Year’s greeting to all. This is my first message to the membership as the newly elected Club President. I humbly thank those who nominated me for this post and extend thanks to those who voted to seat me. I would also like to congratulate all of the other elected officers and Executive Council members upon assuming their respective offices. Together, we plan to move the Club forward during this term of office. I take this opportunity to thank our out-going President Major Sandy Mayuga for his magnificent leadership over these past five years.  Certainly a job well done. 

This will be an exciting, but yet challenging year for the Club. I am personally excited in that an excellent array of speakers will be visiting us on the various Mess Nights enticing all to attend.  With this said, I believe that it is clear to all we are in need of expanding our membership of both British and  Commonwealth military and civilians and, of course, US Military. Each of us should set a personal goal of inviting a new qualified prospective member. If we do not increase our roles by the end of 2016 from the pool of British and Commonwealth military and civilians andUS Military in the LA area, we have the option of relaxing our criterion and expanding membership past our traditional definition. The future is up to each of us to recruit members.

During the year, I will be seeking more participation by Club Members both at Mess Nights and in the community. It is my desire to expand the reach of the Club well beyond the Altadena Town and Country Club. This entails having a presence and supporting various British and Commonwealth events throughout
the year in the surrounding communities while showing our “colors” ensuring that we are more visible. This will seek to enhance and retain our British and Commonwealth Military culture.

" The Majestic Queen Mary "
Commodore Everett Hoard
Commodore Hoard will overview the R.M.S. Queen Mary’s noble life as history’s most beloved passenger ship in war and peace and fair weather and foul. He will describe her status as the most unique hotel, a star attraction, and a place for special events.
The Commodore will address her rise from the ashes of the Great Depression, how she got her name, the glamour years of the 30s, her finest hours in the Second World War, the glory days of the 50’s, and the demise of point-to-point ocean travel, as well as the ship’s unique place today.
