Kraken Nation: Giving Thanks

The holiday season is upon us, and we couldn't be more excited!

We've got some fantastic news for you, Joint Base Charleston. We're serving a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner next Thursday and we want you to join us. We'll be at Gaylor Dining Facility from 11am - 1:30pm, and we're ready to fill your plate! Come hungry!

But that's not all - we're also hosting an Army vs. Navy football game watch party in early December. We expect you to bring your friends, family, and your cheering voices to support your team!

Finally, our Breakfast with Santa event is coming soon, and we promise it's going to be a fun-packed event for the whole family. Imagine a delightful breakfast spread, exciting activities, fun contests, and of course, a chance to meet Santa Claus himself. Make sure you register as soon as possible so you don't miss the opportunity to join us for a morning of fun!

We're thrilled to spread the holiday cheer with you all and can't wait to see you there!

You know who to root for. Come out to The Dive on December 9th to watch the big game, enjoy some great food, and take advantage of the opportunity to win great prizes.
