Robins sets memorial service for May 21

Robins Air Force Base officials will pay tribute to deceased, former members of Team Robins Plus on May 21, sustaining a tradition that began 33 years ago.

The annual memorial service, a partnership between Robins, the Warner Robins Chamber of Commerce and the Middle Georgia Camellia Society, will be held at the base’s camellia gardens across from the officer’s club beginning at 10 a.m.

The 78th Air Base Wing chapel is in charge of arrangements. More than 1,400 former military and civilian employees at Robins have been honored in past memorial ceremonies.

Chaplain Michael Newton, this year’s project officer, is accepting submissions for this year’s program. He may be contacted at michael.newton@robins.af.mil or at (478) 926-2821. There is no fee to honor someone.
