Opportunities to Support 54th Enlisted Appreciation Night Still Available

The Greater Enid Chamber Military Affairs Committee will host Enlisted Appreciation Night for enlisted men and women of Vance Air Force Base (VAFB) on April 22, 2023. The event is closed to the public; however, we are currently registering volunteers from the community to assist with the event. There is also time to support the effort through monetary and prize donations. This will be the 54th year for the event which has been recognized by the Air Force as one of the finest displays of appreciation for enlisted personnel. The event demonstrates commitment and support for VAFB and helps acquaint military personnel with the Enid business community.  

To find out how you can be involved or for more information, please contact Lori Coonrod at 580.237.2494 or lori@enidchamber.com. Businesses contributing cash or prizes will be recognized in our newsletter and throughout the event on digital signage and in the event program.
