Around Town: Navy Week

Navy officers and enlisted personnel in crisp summer white uniforms were an impressive sight at several special events during Navy Week in Toledo in August, 2012. Guests boarded the USS De Wert for a private reception honoring the bicentennial of the War of 1812. A Welcoming Reception fundraiser at the Maritime Academy of Toledo netted more than $3,000. And about 40 developmentally disabled adults of Lucas County from Wiley Homes saw the ships on the Maumee River during Navy Week, thanks to Harbor View Yacht Club, which hosts an annual cruise for the group.
