The West Point Society of Annapolis (WPSOA) held a modest BEAT NAVY dinner in lieu of its 32nd annual winter social on December 6, 2020. Five attendees, including WPSOA President Steve Heinecke ’77 and his wife, Robin, Treasurer Bill Taylor ’70, Secretary Bob Opatovsky ’70 and Membership Chairman John Holbert ’77, gathered in the Benny Havens Room at O'Brien's Oyster Bar & Restaurant, Annapolis, MD, to enjoy the fellowship that good company, food, and drink bring. Of course, before departing the dining room, the attendees performed a modest “Rocket” cheer!
Prior to COVID 19 restrictions, the WPSOA annual winter social event was an opportunity to say farewell to the Exchange Cadets who were assigned to the Naval Academy for the Fall semester, have them sign their BEAT NAVY Banner – a 23-year tradition – and have a holiday social event for our membership. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, there were neither Exchange Cadets nor a winter social. Perhaps next year.
