While there have been some changes to restrictions coming on May 15th, the Commonwealth of Virginia is clear that we will continue to mandate mask-wearing and social distancing, even as commercial restrictions are further eased. The maximum number of individuals permitted in a social gathering will increase to 100 people for indoor settings and 250 people for outdoor settings.

 For those who cannot attend, the celebration will be recorded and a link will be added to our website at a later date.

Each year, the Propeller Club, Port of Norfolk, with our fellow clubs across the country, celebrates National Maritime Day. Established by Congress in 1933, National Maritime Day honors the work and contributions of past Merchant Seamen who endured the perils of the sea during times of war and peace, and celebrates and recognizes those who proudly carry on that tradition today.
