Picnic celebrates interns, summer hires, 2nd lieutenants

Hundreds of interns, summer hires and 2nd lieutenants working/serving across Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are invited to be honored Aug. 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the 3rd annual Wright-Patt Young Professionals Picnic to be held at Bass Lake.

The work of hundreds of young professionals assigned to Air Force Materiel Command, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, the Air Force Research Laboratory, the National Air and Space Intelligence Center and other organizations will be celebrated with remarks by civilian and military senior leadership, a picnic lunch and an afternoon of activities and fellowship. It is an alternate duty location.

Activities in the past have ranged from volleyball, relay races and musical chairs to board and carnival games, water balloons and a dunk tank featuring several department chiefs and program leaders.

But the picnic offers more than opportunities for fun, its organizers say; an important point of the event is to get to know the people the young professionals will be working with in the cross-functional areas.
