Bill Thomaston, 95th ABW command chief, in front of the newly-constructed Edwards Community Bulletin Board that was officially opened for use March 20.

Information important to the community has always been an installation commander’s priority. Acting on feedback from community surveys, input from the Enlisted Spouses Club, and encouragement from deployed spouses during the Hearts Apart program led the 95th ABW to prioritize this project.

Schwab and Thomaston commented, “We are proud of the extraordinary efforts on the part of the 95the ABW civil engineers to make this important community project a reality.”

The new community bulletin board is located between the Exchange and the Commissary on Fitzgerald Blvd.
