Volunteers pay$ off
Col. Stephen Butler, 45th Space Wing vice commander, accepts a “check” in the amount of $621,107 from Mary Rike, left, and Tamara Johnson at the Volunteer Appreciation Ice Cream Social at the Airman and Family Readiness Center May 1. The check represents the amount of money volunteers save the Wing each year. “When you see the actual ‘number’ of how much our volunteers contribute, you really have to step back and reflect on how very lucky we are,” said Colonel Butler.
