Card contest brings out creativity

December 19, 2013

Hill AFB units and squadrons assembled holiday cards and mounted them along the South Gate Avenue just as winter hit the Top of Utah. As winter hit the holiday cards were festooned with snow, and motorists were greeted by holiday cards as they made their way through the icy and snowy slog or as they left the base.
Awarded first place in the contest, and $500 in Force Support Squadron credit, was the 75th Logistics Readiness Squadron.
Staff Sgt. Dominic Giardino and at least eight other volunteers in the 75th LRS came together to revise their entry this year.

Winter has arrived

EDITOR’S NOTE:  This article currently appears in the 75th FSS Happenings Booklet available at FSS activities basewide.
Winter has arrived and I’m concerned that there’s not enough time to enjoy all that Utah has to offer especially in winter. The other day I was so stressed out trying to figure out how I was going to get all my holiday shopping done without sacrificing my goal of 30 days of skiing this season. Then it came to me! I can shop at home; taking advantage of my own 75th Force Support Squadron.


Representatives from several breweries offered at the Oktoberfest participant at the event held Sept. 12 at Centennial Park. Patrons got the opportunity to sample various microbrews from various vendors with the purchase of tickets. The weather cooperated and attendees enjoyed pleasant late summer temperatures and a chance to visit with old friends and make new acquaintances as they tasted the various offerings and chose food items from vendors. A DJ spun tunes to add to the festive atmosphere.

Five months after having met Lana, Connie Delamater never imagined her heart would feel so full. It's hard for her to believe that in as little as eleven months she'll prepare to say, "Goodbye."

"It's kind of like waving as your kids go off to college, but it's puppy college," she said. "And it's in Oceanside California."

Even though saying, "Goodbye," will be difficult, "The joyful part of this, is that hopefully Lana is destined to become a service dog or a skilled companion dog," Delamater said, "It's going to be tough giving her up."
