End of Year Note - 12.20.18
This past year LCLA, along with three peninsula based construction companies, donated an outdoor sand volleyball court (pictured) with equipment to the Airmen living in the dormitories on LAFB. We also sponsored the 2018 AirPower over Hampton Roads distinguished visitors “Commander’s Tent” as well as providing refreshments for Airmen working the airshow logistics. Our annual contribution of $10,000 helped fund several important Airmen events and programs. You may recall based on the conversations JJ and I had with the Senior Enlisted Command Chiefs, the LCLA membership approved an increase in the annual contribution to the Command Chiefs in the 2019 budget from $10 to $15K. This increase will go directly to support Airmen and family programs on the base. We also started and continue to participate in the “Free Round of Golf Passes,” and “Scoreboard Sponsorship Program,” which has provided additional funding for the LAFB golf course. And we continue to grow the “Adopt an Airman” program and have reached 185 participants! As always there are Airmen waiting for host families. I want to personally thank each of you for your continued support and leadership as we advocate on behalf of the great Airmen serving at Langley.
Finally, I want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and look forward to seeing all of you in 2019!
President, Langley Civic Leaders Association
