Grateful for CAFB, Thunderbirds visit
To the Citizens of Lowndes County and Columbus Air Force Base,
On behalf of Lowndes County and Columbus, I am thrilled to welcome the United States Air Force Thunderbirds to our community for the Wings Over Columbus Air Show on this Saturday and Sunday.
This event promises to be a wonderful opportunity to showcase our area and Columbus Air Force Base to visitors from far and wide.
We are particularly grateful for all the men and women who currently serve in our armed forces, especially those who take time out of their important duties to bring quality, family events like these to our area.
If you have the opportunity, take a moment to welcome our guests and let them know how much you appreciate what they are doing for us this weekend, and every day. Thank someone from Columbus Air Force Base, as they have worked tirelessly to provide us with a great weekend of safe, exciting fun and are essential members of our community.
Join me this weekend at Columbus Air Force Base for Wings Over Columbus. I hope to see you there.
Sanders is president of the Lowndes County Board of Supervisors.
