HIGGS: Time to salute the folks at NIMAC

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Recipients of many community awards for their volunteer service, Merrell and John remain humble as they go about the community keeping the understanding of the importance of the air base to the economic health of the area. They continue to stress the importance of this the last federal U.S. Air Force installation in the state of New York and the largest facility in the region.

You can become a member and help strengthen NIMAC in its efforts on behalf of the men and women of the military stationed in our area. Membership is open to business, service clubs, individuals and groups interested in helping NIMAC work locally and with government officials both in Albany and the nation’s capitol. A membership form is available on the following website: www.nimac.org.

Recent news hinted at the possibility of drones making a home base at this facility. Maybe that will make their job easier. Only time will tell if the community has to rise into action again. In the meantime, let’s give a cheer (or two) for this hard working organization, the Niagara Military Affairs Council.
