Every year, during the holiday season, our friends at MWR Fort Lee host a family-friendly tree-lighting ceremony called the Grand Illumination. We believe strongly in the importance of showing military families and the community around them that they are valued dearly. This year, we partnered with MWR through our Prince George, VA office to sponsor the Grand Illumination event. We’re so happy you joined us! We had a great time caroling and listening to the amazingly talented Fort Lee Army Band. Between enjoying delicious cookies, hot chocolate and posing for pictures with Santa, the Fort Lee community also decorated one of the best trees we’ve ever seen. Thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed a wonderful evening!
Congratulations to the winner of the Omni Raffle this year, the Lee family pictured above! They won an enormous 5 foot tall LED Snowman just in time to decorate. We sincerely hope you enjoy your prize. We’re glad we were able to meet you and share the joy of the holiday season. We hope to see you again next year at the Grand Illumination event 2019!
