The Retiree Activities Office is sponsoring its annual Military Retiree Appreciation Weekend Sept. 26 through 28.

The event offers Robins Air Force Base and community partners an opportunity to recognize and provide information to the retired military population.

A job fair at the Heritage Club kicks off the weekend Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Forty five to 60 employers are expected to attend. It's open to all Team Robins members and eligible family members with base access.

Saturday's activities begin at 6:30 a.m. with a pay-as-you-go breakfast at the Wynn Dining facility. Briefings begin at 9 a.m.

Col. Chris Hill, Installation commander, will speak to attendees. Other briefings may be provided by the base pharmacy, immunization clinic, TRICARE, security forces and others.

The Base Legal Office will also offer will preparation and other legal services by appointment only on Sept. 27. To schedule an appointment, call 478 926-9276 or DSN 468-9276. All appointments will be in Bldg. 708 which is located across from the medical clinic.

A pay-as-you go lunch will be available in the Heritage Club's Pizza Depot from noon until 1 p.m.

A vendor fair will be held in the Heritage Bingo Room from noon to 4 p.m. The fair will provide on- and off-base organizations, which support retirees, to introduce themselves and provide education on available resources and services.

Local businesses and organizations can set up a vendor table at no charge on a first-come, first-served basis. Set up for the event will be from 10:30 a.m. to noon. All local veterans' organizations are encouraged to participate.

Drawings for door prizes will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the Heritage Club Bingo Room.
