ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Employee Appreciation Day activities for Anniston Army Depot Employees will take place June 28.

There will be many activities for the employees and their families to participate in and enjoy.

There will be car shows to hot dog eating contests, with many more events taking place.

An occasion like this doesn't just happen, it takes planning, coordination and support from the community as well as support from the employees.

ANAD has a working group, which is planning activities for the day, and we have support from the community.

Now, we need your support to make it all come together.

If you are interested in volunteering to support Employee Appreciation Day, there are two ways in which you can help:

First: Each directorate and team has been given an event to manage throughout the day.

If you would like to volunteer to assist within your own directorate, we encourage you to do so. For example: The Depot Operations Office is managing inflatable bounce houses for children. If you work within the DOO and wish to volunteer, please assist there first.

Second: General Volunteer Assistance -- On June 28, the day of the event, we will need volunteers to assist with many activities which are normally taken for granted.

We need assistance with vendor escorts, refreshments and many more items.

If you would like to assist in any of these areas, contact Dennis King via email at dennis.j.king8.naf@mail.mil or Johnnie Whitehead at johnnie.s.whitehead.civ@mail.mil.

You may also call 256-235-7445 to volunteer or visit Bldg. 220 to learn out how you can be part of this wonderful volunteer opportunity.

As we get closer to Employee Appreciation Day, we will publish a list of events, activities and contests as well as how you can sign up to participate in those activities.
