WPS of the Tennessee Valley Victory Party

The West Point Society of the Tennessee Valley held an Army-Navy Victory Party at Valley Hill Country Club in Huntsville, Alabama on the 10th of December, 2016. Over 135 were in attendance to watch Army end Navy’s streak and beat the Midshipmen. The excitement was contagious, the camaraderie was excellent, and the noise level was extreme. From the opening kickoff to the last play society members were focused on the task at hand – BEATING NAVY! They are already counting down the days until we beat Navy again next year.

On Monday, December 26th, the Tennessee Valley Society reconvened at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Jones Valley in Huntsville to cheer the Army team on to victory over North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Well over 50 people showed up and represented Army West Point with cheers, fight songs, impromptu old grad rockets (thanks to Tom Economy ’81) and the singing of the Alma Mater after the game. Rumor has it that a few beers were consumed that day as well.

WPS of New Jersey Fisher House Contribution

WPS of New Jersey Fisher House ContributionThe West Point Society of New Jersey presented a $5000 contribution to the Fisher House Foundation as part of the Annual Gingerbread Ball, held at the Sheraton Hotel in Eatontown NJ recently. Presenting the check was Tony G. Smith ’78, WPSNJ President. Accepting was Brian Gawne, VP Operations, Fisher House Foundation. The Society contribution came mainly from funds raised during the annual West Point Society Charity Scramble, a golf tournament the Society runs every year in June at the Gambler Ridge Golf Club in Cream Ridge, NJ. The 2016 Gingerbread Ball raised over $60,000, with all proceeds going to support the Fisher House Foundation. The golf tournament will be held at Gambler Ridge in 2017 on Friday, 2 June. Mark your calendars for that, as well as our 2017 Founder's Day Dinner, being held at Beacon Hill Country Club in Atlantic Highlands on Saturday, 25 March. Invitations will be mailed in January.
