Brenda Renninger Receives NER Venturing Leadership Award

Posted By Administration, Thursday, April 10, 2014

Each year, the NER can award 8 Venturing Leadership Awards to a Venturing Scout from the Northeast United States.  Northeast Region Venturing (Otherwise known as NERVE) serves more than 22,000 Venturers in 65 councils across 13 states, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the European Embassies.  So this award is quite special.

Brenda Renninger, 18, of Ship 548 was the NER Sea Scout Venturing Leadership Award winner at the 2014 NER Sea Scout Bridge of Honor.  Brenda has had an extraordinary rise in her 6 years serving as Boatswain of her Ship, Squadron, Flotilla and Region.  She is a 2011 graduate of the SEAL Course, attending in Galveston, TX.

When asked “you’ve been Boatswain of nearly every level in Sea Scouts – what are you going to do now?” she did not reply with a trip to Disneyworld.  Her plans are to attend the College of Southern Maryland and eventually teach Kindergarten.  The NER Sea Scouts have no doubt that every one of these lucky young kids will end up sailors.

Sea Scouts have Christmas with the Coast Guard

Posted By Wardroom, Tuesday, February 04, 2014

On Sunday December 15, 2013 the Coast Guard Station St. Inigoes had their annual Christmas Party for the children of the station personnel.   They had a Christmas Tree with presents underneath, lots of food and soft drinks brought in by the parents.   They played some games and waited for Santa Claus to arrive.   At the appointed time Santa (Steve Alexander, member of Auxiliary Flotilla 21-11 and Sea Scout Ship 759) came into the station dock on the Station’s 45 foot patrol boat.   Also aboard were two Elves (Zach Stauffer and Patrick Russel, Sea Scouts of Ship 548 in Avenue)


After Santa waved and did his ho, ho, ho’s the two Elves helped Santa give out the presents.   The little ones and some of the big ones had their picture taken with Santa and because he was at his busiest time of the year he and his Elves had to leave.


Senior Chief Philip Robinson, Officer in Charge of the station asked the Sea Scouts to come back in the spring to do some nautical skills training.
