Join us for a celebration of the USS Silversides Submarine Museum – honoring the legacy, remembering our military, and educating the community. This event reminds us of all of the sacrifices made by those at home and abroad during World War II and what it was like to celebrate the end of a very trying time.
This Annual Luau Fundraiser provides much needed support for our education programs, overnight encampments, exhibits, and vessel preservation. YOUR support will help thousands of visitors learn more about World War II and how the West Michigan community was affected so many years ago.
We will gather on Thursday, September 7 at 6pm for dinner, drinks and entertainment. Hawaiian attire optional.
