Greenbury Point – Towers To The Past
July 31, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$75.25
Over the course of two world wars and well beyond, the people of Annapolis played golf next to and boated past America’s most top-secret military communication facility and didn’t have a clue they were living near our nation’s first line of defense. On our sunset sail, we will unravel the guarded government secrets that have long remained hidden, and hear about a mysterious place where many battles were fought and history grudgingly preserved.
