This article presents information about various councils of the Navy League in the U.S. A number of councils of the Navy League made the best of the summer vacation season, and the prospects of limited meeting attendance, by hosting fundraising events where participation was discouraged. The Council of Channel Islands, California, offered its annual "No Show Luncheon" in July 2004 in lieu of the regular business meeting. The council accepted $5 donations for the luncheon from members and guests. The Central New Jersey Council on June 3, 2004, adopted the newly commissioned sailing vessel USCGC Sailfish.
