The anticipated arrival of Fleet Week Port Everglades means a time of excitement and hard work for our club. Each spring, Broward Navy Days plans and organizes welcoming events and shore leave activities for the crews of visiting Navy and Coast Guard ships. Kiwanis Club of Wilton Manors has the privilege of hosting one of these events at our clubhouse. “Sailors Night” is our special way of showing our appreciation for the sacrifice and dedicated service of our “White Hats” by hosting the officers and crew of a visiting Navy vessel, usually a submarine, and local Coast Guard personnel. Our special guests are welcomed treated to an evening of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, entertainment, dinner, and lavish desserts, featuring our famous Sundae Bar. There are also candy bags and special remembrance gifts to take with them. Our guests claim this to be the highlight of their week. It is always a rewarding and very special evening for us, which would not be possible without the tremendous support we receive from local businesses in donating food and items for the event.
