(The Chamber, in cooperation w/ GLDC and Griffiss employers, is working to create an atmosphere at the Park that assists employers in maintaining and growing a productive workforce. Those pictured above are a handful of employees of Griffiss civilian firms and military organizations who are volunteering their time as members of GSAC and exploring various entertainment, cultural, and recreational options that Park employees might enjoy.

Incidentally, shown in the background of the above pic is one of several historical photos in the bank’s conference room denoting the Griffiss timeline, from the WWII era to today. Circa 1943, it’s a picture taken during the Rome Air Depot’s Employee Appreciation Day (the depot was established in 1942, went thru numerous name changes and re-designations until 1948 when it was renamed in honor of Lt. Col. Townsend Griffiss of Buffalo, an Army Air Corps pilot who died in an aircraft accident in England in 1942 -- the first US airman to lose his life in the European Theater during WWII).
