Camellia Gardens Memorial
The annual Camellia Gardens Memorial Service paid tribute to 59 deceased members of Team Robins May 23 in the tranquil garden across from the Horizons Event Center. Maj. Gen. Craig Gourley, Air Force Reserve Command vice commander, delivered the memorial address, the base honor guard delivered a 21-gun salute and taps was played. The service is a 37-year tradition rooted in a partnership between Robins, the Middle Georgia Camellia Society and the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce. The three teamed in 1976 to establish and dedicate the garden. At the garden’s entrance, a brick and mortar wall displays gold plaques with the names of 1,896 deceased military and civilian members from Robins who were honored in past ceremonies.

The annual Camellia Gardens Memorial Service - which pays tribute to deceased members of Team Robins - will be May 22 at 10 a.m. in the tranquil garden across from Horizons Event Center.


The service, a moving, patriotic tribute to the departed, is a 38-year tradition. At the garden's entrance, a brick and mortar wall displays plaques with the names of more than 1,600 deceased military and civilian members from Robins honored in past ceremonies.


This year's ceremony is a project of the Team Robins Company Grade Officer Council and the base chapel. Tony Baumann, director of contracting at Robins, will provide the memorial address. A reception will follow at Horizons.


All military should wear the uniform of the day; civilians should wear business attire.
