1st Lt. Jordan Hayes talked about the upcoming communication exercise this weekend, Dec. 6-8.  Anyone interested, please contact him.

The Safety Program conducted by Maj. Frank Riebli followed with a very timely presentation about Safety around Food.

Maj Riebli
The very informative and interesting Power Point presentation depicted safety rules to follow while preparing food as well as during the time food is left at the table for people to eat later.  Maj. Riebli also discussed how to save and store leftovers as well as how long they can be kept.  We are sorry for those of you that did not attend the meeting, because you missed a very descriptive sequence of events that can lead to food poisoning and it is good to know what to do to avoid it.

After completion of the program, Maj. Luneau invited all members to go to the hangar where the “Find” ribbon was placed on N445CP.

Maj Luneau, N445CP
Have a very Happy Holidays and we will see you in the New Year!
