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.
