Past Events (since last Newsletter):
Since our last newsletter we have had a New Years Dive and a Turks & Caicos Health and Wellness Trip. Some details and photos are below. Please refer to our SigActs section of the TRP website for more photos here: https://thetrp.org/our-gallery/
1) New Years Dive 2023
A wonderful and fun day of diving to bring peace to the hearts of veterans! Beach was a little rocky from the storms, but still surprisingly clean, so there wasn’t a cleanup this year. Thank you to our volunteers that made this a great day!
2) Turks & Caicos Health and Wellness Liveaboard
As a reward for engagement and achievements in the TRP, several of our members got to enjoy a Health and Wellness Trip down to Turks and Caicos! Huge congrats to Margaret for completing her Open Water and huge congrats to Jay for getting his 100th dive! Great job!
We have many fun and amazing events coming up! These include our members meetings, a ski trip, a climbing day, our famous wings competition, and a Public Safety Diver course! For more details and to see our calendar of events, please refer to the website here: https://thetrp.org/upcoming-events/
