Warner Robins, GA – The Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce recognized the 2013 Leadership Robins Region Class August 18 by cutting a ribbon in front of the new Museum of Aviation Main Gate Sign. The class, comprised of 12 business leaders and led by Lisa Fruge-Cirilli, completed a project in 2013 “to satisfy a need in the community that was currently not being met,” according to Fruge-Cirilli. The class decided to provide a new entrance sign to the Museum of Aviation.
As a class, the participants sold racks of ribs on two separate occasions and sought personal contributions to fund their efforts. The fundraising efforts went so well that the class had additional funds to spend on doing a small amount of landscaping and a paint refresh on the existing playground equipment and were able to purchase a couple of new pieces for inside the Museum Compound.
Interim Robins Regional Chamber President Steve Williams served as master of ceremonies for the ceremony which included Warner Robins Mayor Randy Toms, Museum of Aviation Foundation Board of Directors Chairman Tom McMichael, Museum of Aviation Foundation staff and 2013 Leadership Robins Region Class members.
