Santa Cruz community says "Thank YOU to the National Guard" for the past 6 months of service during our critical need. An afternoon reception at the Santa Cruz Harbor with special appetizers by the Crow's Nest and an array of desserts provided by local bakeries from Boulder Creek to Watsonville was enjoyed by many.
Immediately following the reception 100+ members of the National Guard and family members boarded a fleet of our local charter boats and were escorted out of the harbor by Harbor Patrol and Harbormaster Blake Anderson for a sunset cruise 5-7pm.
Gift bags were a significant collaboration of our local businesses and greatly appreciated by the men and women of the National Guard. Together we created a memorable experience and a message of immense gratitude!
