Eastern CTThe Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT is pleased to announce it will host an inaugural "State of the Submarine Base" luncheon featuring Captain Paul Whitescarver on Wednesday, April 17, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Mystic Marriott Hotel & Spa (625 North Road/CT Route 117, Groton). Tickets are available for purchase on or (860) 701-9113. The event is sponsored by Robinson + Cole and AT&T.

Eastern CT's business community, as well as residents who work for or with the region's military installations, are encouraged to attend this luncheon. As Captain Whitescarver's tenure as 51st Commander of Naval Submarine Base New London concludes in May 2019, he will highlight the current state and impact of the base as it continues to provide a Base Operations Support (BOS) infrastructure to the operating forces of the U.S. Navy and other naval organizations and tenants. Captain Whitescarver will also discuss the role of today's submarine force.

The presentation will be followed by an open audience question and answer session.

"Captain Whitescarver is a real champion of the sub base and a wonderfully involved partner with the business community," said Tony Sheridan, President & CEO of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT. "He has been actively engaged in a whole host of community activities while overseeing the significant improvements at the base. The region is much the better for his great work and commitment. We look forward to having an update on the current state of the base and developments to come.”
