United States Navy League

The Panama Council of the Navy League of the United States is perhaps best known for the high quality of its monthly speakers -- and not just on maritime issues either.

We also develop good community relations and support the men and women of the sea services, and their families. To this end the Navy League works closely with the US Navy, Marine Corp. Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, and the Universidad Marítima Internacional de Panamá to provide support for local community relations projects such as cleaning, painting and repairing schools, orphanages, community centers. Our scholarship program for cadets of the UMIP -- the former Escuela Nautica -- is over 20 years old.


will be December 11th

Christmas Dinner and Silent Auction

It is that time of the year where we can relax with a great dinner, some Christmas music, and enjoy winning some great gifts! All to help a good cause -- The Navy League Panama Scholarship Fund.

Le Meridien Hotel is cooking up a special holiday menu for us.

We will have the owner of Orchestra Cafe, Jair Ruiz, on the piano playing Christmas music, and perhaps some vocals from a certain Panamanian singing artist...

The gifts are coming in and so far we have:

-- Two canastas from Niels Pedersen

-- An autographed NCIS script -- signed by the cast

-- Gift Certificate for brunch at Gamboa Rainforest Resort

-- Two separate hotel weekend stays at Le Meridien valid for 2 guests each. Those come with room, breakfast and internet for 1 weekend night.

-- A Relaxing Massage Session and use of Le Meridian's Sensory Spa by Clarins for 1 person

There will be more to announce but the Christmas spirit is enhanced knowing the proceeds from the auction are helping some terrific cadets at UMIP. If you can assist with donating a gift certificate or gift item, please do let us know.

So please do join us to win your favorites!

Date: December 11

Universidad Marítima Internacional de Panamá -- UMIP
Who’s New
American Society


Panama is a maritime nation and badly needs persons trained to be Officers in the Merchant Marine. The Universidad Marítima Internacional de Panamá (UMIP) helps meet this need and offers Panamanians from modest backgrounds the opportunity to qualify as shipboard officers or for executive positions elsewhere in the Maritime Industry. However, a significant number of students and prospective students at the University need financial assistance to cover the cost of books, equipment and living expenses. 

To help meet this need, the Panama Council of the Navy League is coordinating a a Program to convert “Puntos de Oro” from the Supermercado del Rey Chain into Balboas/Dollars to be used for financial assistance to deserving students, You can contribute to this Program by donating as little as 1000 points from your “Puntos de Oro” account. All you have to do is fill in the form, have it witnessed and contact the Navy League office whose address is on the form. NOTE! You do not have to be a member of the Navy League to donate to this worthwhile program.
