If you volunteer or know someone who volunteers, here is an opportunity for all volunteers to be recognized. The 2018 Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony and Social is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. April 19 at Heritage Hall.
Volunteers contribute much time, dedication and enthusiasm to the base and local communities. The President's Volunteer Service Awards recognize volunteers' commitment to programs and communities. They are ordinary people who accomplish the extraordinary through volunteerism. The time period for recognition is March 1, 2017, through Dec. 31, 2017.
