NOTES Kudos to our helpers for IDIPIC Holiday Fun November 30th: AE1 Jason Schofield of VAQ-130, Cecilia Welch, Sabrina Underwood, Scott Scrimshaw, John Hellmann, Anne Murphy of the Oak Harbor Library and her band of merry helpers: Michaela Geist, Emma Poulson, Mallory Hunt and Kat Fisher. The safety event kicked off National Impaired Driving Prevention Month, which was recognized with a proclamation by Island County just prior to Thanksgiving and will be recognized by the City of Oak Harbor December 6th.
NASWI NEWS The latest NASWI commands to attend a panel were VAQ-139, VAQ-142 and NIOC last month. A number of Indoc personnel from various commands attended as well bringing the total to over 500. Just a few of many comments:
“Normally I fall asleep for these assemblies but this one was touching. The videos and stories were very effective.”
“The presentation was very informative and I did learn a lot. I can honestly say that there are a few bad habits that I will break.”
“It was a good panel. All the speakers brought something different to the panel. Very informative and educative.”
Your command can reserve one of these potentially lifesaving prevention panels with just a phone call or email. Details HERE.
PANELS for December are the 3rd in Freeland, and 6th, 12th and 17th in Oak Harbor; we’ve added a third one in Oak Harbor for this month to accommodate the many driver’s ed. students and their parents. Check out the panel schedule HERE.
