Thanks for Your Service!
The event took place at the Flight Path Museum on the grounds of LAX.
Many of the employees had worked their entire careers for Airports (some at Ontario before the City sold it), and some employees had worked at other City departments.
The employees were recognized for their dedication, commitment, loyalty, knowledge, experience, hard work, helpfulness and reliability. In total, 85 employees were honored; 33 were able to attend the ceremony.
Airports Chief Executive Officer Deborah Flint welcomed and thanked all those who were being honored for their service.
Congratulations to the honorees for your dedicated service!
The Club thanks Adriana Vidal, CASW Program Coordinator, Airports, for her assistance in producing this article.
