7/15/2010 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Keesler's inaugural Diversity Day is noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday at the Dragon's Lair.

Staff Sgt. Adrienne Russell-George from the 81st Training Wing equal opportunity office is heading up the event which includes music, literature, dance, poetry, face painting, games and food for children and adults.

"This event is a celebration of all people from all nations in an effort to promote inclusiveness, rather than exclusiveness, by sharing ourselves to bring us closer together as a community and a wing," Sergeant Russell-George explained.

"It's not intended to preempt the Defense Department's mandated observances. These observances will continue to be recognized, but all will be celebrated on Diversity Day.

"We have foreign students in the 81st Training Group, and we're asking units to adopt a culture and help students celebrate their heritage and culture," Sergeant Russell-George added.

For information, call Sergeant Russell-George, 377-2759, or e-mail
