Community Happenings – November 2, 2012

Free access to Lake Mead: Lake Mead National Recreation Area park rangers will distribute free National Park Service annual passes to active duty military and their families at Aviation Nation Nov. 11. The passes, valued at $80, provide the service member, their children and up to three adults (16 or older) with free access to all 397 national parks, including the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The National Park Service offers free annual passes to all members of the military with a CAC card or official dependent ID card (DD form 1173). Although free passes are not available for veterans or retirees, anyone 62 or older qualifies for a $10 lifetime Senior Pass. All passes will be available at Aviation Nation 2012 and are available year round at the Lake Mead entrance stations. Additionally, in honor of Veterans Day, the National Park Service is offering free admission to all guests Nov. 10-12. For more information, call 702-293-8990 or visit a park ranger at Aviation Nation Nov. 11.

Deployed Spouses supporting Deployed Spouses: Stay strong during deployments and meet with other deployed spouses. Share ideas, learn coping skills, socialize and more. Meetings are held at the Airman and Family Readiness Center from 11 a.m. to noon the first and third Monday of each month. For more information call (702) 652-3327.

Champagne Sunday Brunch: Starting Oct. 7 the Club will hold a Sunday Brunch from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Children under eight years of age eat free.

Flu Vaccinations: The 99th Medical Operations Squadron Immunization Clinic has the flu vaccine. For more information, call the immunization clinic at (702) 653-2410.

Gate Changes: On Oct. 1, Nellis AFB lost contract gate guards services due to expiration of the federal law that permitted this arrangement after 9/11. As a result, the 99th Security Forces Squadron will experience a significant manpower shortfall over the next several months which will drive a reduction in some services and base entry points. The Range Road gate will no longer conduct commercial vehicle searches or issue base passes. All commercial traffic will be rerouted to the Area II commercial gate for inspection and all visitors will be processed at the Main Gate Visitor Center 24/7. In addition, Hollywood and VA gates are closeduntil further notice. Traffic that would normally use the Hollywood gate can use the Tyndall, Main, or Area II gates, while traffic for the Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center should use the Range Road gate. Any questions can be addressed to the 99th Security Forces Squadron Base Defense Operations Center at (702) 652-2311

Military Family Photo Day: The Airman and Family Readiness Center will be holding by appointment only Military Family Photo Day from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Nov. 3. Pets are welcome.
