3 December 2009 – STOUT Christmas Party. The Holiday Season is upon us and to celebrate we came together for a great meal, music, dancing and camaraderie with our fellow shipmates and family members. Master Chief Campbell, Chief Templeman and the entire MWR Committee did an outstanding job coordinating the evening. Because of the great work of the MWR Committee we were able to give away many prizes throughout the evening including five large screen TV’s, several IPODs, Play Stations, Wiis and countless gift certificates. In all we gave away over $7,000 in prizes.
At the party we also announced Sailor of the Year, Junior Sailor of the Year and Blue Jacket of the Year award winners for 2009. Congratulations to these deserving Sailors.
