2/9/2012 - 12/20/2011 - WILLOW GROVE AIR RESERVE STATION, PA --      Hundreds of volunteer hours paid big dividends during this year's Wing family holiday event. This was the first year that the event would be held at an off-base location due to
availability of facilities on-base.
     "In October, we started to explore replacement locations close to the base that would be able to accommodate the large crowd that we knew we'd encounter for the party,"  said Anna Richar, Airman and Family Readiness Group manager.
     First Lt. Samuel Nop brought his wife and their two daughters.  "This gathering is so nice. You can really see that a lot of hard work by the volunteers went into making this event such a hit," said Lt. Nop. "There are so many things for children of all age groups to have fun with," he added.
     "Miles of smiles," said Chief Master Sgt. (Ret.) Jenny Pappas, former Wing member and very active Family Readiness Group volunteer. "We had 850 unit members and their families register to attend. Besides of the staff of Happy Tymes, we had 40 volunteers assisting throughout the event.  Cleanup was a snap," she added.
