ANAD holds Community Appreciation Day
October 11, 2012
ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Community Appreciation Day...the name says so much and describes just what the event was all about - celebrating the depot community.
Col. Brent Bolander, the depot's commander, and Keith Colbert, director of community and family activities, started the afternoon off by detailing all the fun activities to be enjoyed throughout the installation's Morale, Welfare and Recreation area.
There was plenty of food for everyone - ranging from pizza and hamburgers to cupcakes, ice cream and egg rolls.
Then, the games began. Cars, trucks and motorcycles were judged; weights were lifted; horseshoes thrown; supervisors dunked in tanks of water; and weaving through it all were the sounds of music and laughter.
The small crowd present for the opening ceremony quickly grew, filling the bleachers and all available tables by the time of the prize drawings at the end of the day.

At Hill Air Force Base in Utah, another component of Anniston Army Depot also celebrated Community Appreciation Day Oct. 4.
The Defense Non-tactical Generator and Rail Equipment Center, better known as DGRC, was visited by Depot Sergeant Major Jeffrey Marcon, Director of Production Jeff Simmons and Boyd Scoggins, the employee assistance program coordinator, last week.
They led the organization through their Safety Stand Down and Suicide Prevention training then enjoyed Community Appreciation Day there, complete with a potluck lunch, fellowship and prizes.
