Flotilla 17-11 Change Of Watch

On Saturday December 16, 2017 Flotilla 17-11 had its Change of Watch ceremony.  The purpose of the Change of Watch is to install the newly elected officers and to recognize the hard work and effort of the outgoing officers.

The ceremony is patterned after the Coast Guard’s formal time-honored Change of Watch ceremony.
We would like to say thank you to Richard Danner the outgoing Flotilla Commander for his efforts and welcome his Former Vice Flotilla Commander Ema Scott as the new Flotilla Commander! We also welcome the New Vice Flotilla Commander Maria Motes.

Many thanks to all the outgoing Flotilla Staff Officers and a welcome to all the new ones. 2018 looks to be a great year for our flotilla!
