Thunder of Niagara Air Show wins coveted Dick Schram Memorial Community Relations Award for 2015

DEC 17, 2015

The Niagara Falls Air Reserve Base, home of the Air Force Reserve 914th Airlift Wing and New York Air National Guard's 107th Airlift Wing, was presented the Dick Schram Memorial Community Relations Award at the Chairman's Banquet during the 2015 International Council of Air Shows on Dec. 08, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"For the Thunder of Niagara Airshow to win this award at the 2015 ICAS Chairman's Dinner was an incredible honor, not only because it was a win for our entire base, but a win for the entire Western New York Community," said Maj. Benjamin Canetti, Air Show Director, 914th Operations Support Squadron.

"Our base was submitted for this award in competition with every military airshow in the 2015 season throughout the U.S. and Canada. It is the first time this award has been brought home by a Wing in Air Force Reserve Command."

The Dick Schram Memorial Community Relations Award is presented each year to the military base which, in planning and implementing its air show, not only exhibits traditional community relations as it considers the needs of its civilian neighbors, but sets new standards of excellence in this area by including its community in the planning, execution and rewards of the event.

“The 2015 Thunder of Niagara Air Show was designed to increase public awareness of our military, highlight the bravery of men and women in uniform and show the base's appreciation to the people of Western New York for their many years of tremendous support,” Staff Sgt. Mattew Burke tells the Reporter.
