Honoring the US Navy in Rockport

Starting on Friday, July 12th the annual Rockport Navy Weekend commenced to honor and celebrate the long and storied history of the US Navy, and Rockport’s special connection with it.  Among the festivities were a youth kickball game, a pancake breakfast, a concert performed by the Navy Band Northeast’s Pops Ensemble, sailboat tours, and a softball game between members of the US Navy and the US Naval Academy vs. the Rockport Police and Fire Departments.

The weekend brought out hundreds of naval enthusiasts, current military personnel, veterans, friends, and families who were able to partake in all of the activities, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to participate in some of the festivities this weekend.

Every year the Rockport Navy Committee does a wonderful job coordinating the weekend’s events, which always brings the community together.  Posted below are several photos I was able to capture.
