What's Happening at the Nimitz

Last Saturday we had a very successful barbecue and fundraiser! We would like to thank the Corpus Christi Mustangs for generously cooking up and serving over 500 plates of excellent Texas barbecue. That combined with great music from Almost Patsy Cline, cold beer, beautiful weather, and wonderful silent auction items made for a great time for everyone!

This Saturday at 1:30 Hugh Ambrose will be talking about and signing his book, “The Pacific: Hell was an Ocean Away,” the companion book to the HBO series The Pacific. His presentation will be in the West Exhibit Hall of the new George H. W. Bush Gallery and books are available for purchase at the Bush Gallery Museum Store and the Nimitz Bookstore. The presentation and book-signing is free of charge.

If you’re looking for some action-packed entertainment, Living History is this weekend. If you’ve never seen it, you’re missing out. The show is at the Pacific Combat Zone and just one of the things to look forward to is the use of a WWII flamethrower. Shows are at 10:30, 1:00 and 3:30 both Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for children and are sold at the gate.

It’s springtime in Texas and there is always something fun happening in Fredericksburg!
