Looking for Stuff to Do Sunday?

The Charlestown Navy Yard is the place to be!

From 12:30 to 1 pm there will be a Pearl Harbor Day commemoration aboard the USS Cassin Young , a Fletcher class destroyer that is maintained and staffed by the National Park Service and volunteers (I met one this morning). Sailors from USS Freedom will be participating in that ceremony.

After that you can tour LCS-1 as she will be open from 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm.

And, in the spirit of the season, USS Constitution is having her annual tree lighting ceremony. I have it on reasonable authority that there will be cookies available!

USS Constitution will hold its free annual Christmas Tree-Lighting ceremony at 4 p.m. Dec. 7 onboard the ship’s top deck. Boarding for this event begins at 3:30 p.m. The crew has partnered with local schools and community members to celebrate the holiday season with a public ceremony following live cannon fire from the ship’s saluting battery.

Dress warmly - tomorrow's forcast calls for cloudy skies in Boston with rain and snow. It's going to be windy and it's always breezy in the Navy Yard bundle up!
