Customer Appreciation Weekend at the NEX

Each year, the NEX (Navy Exchange) hosts a customer appreciation weekend.  Filled with activities galore, this weekend has been lots of fun!

Activities included:

  • 5K Run 
  • Fishing Derby 
  • Just Dance competition on the PS3
  • Humvee pull competition
  • Bounce House for the kids
  • Concerts
  • Food 
  • Prizes
Special Guests included:
  • A Wounded Warrior
  • Three chefs from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives
  • Kelly Bell Band
  • Sideswipe (a martial arts group)
The entire weekend is made possible by generous donations from sponsors such as Samsung, Sony, Apple, New Balance, and so many more.  I know I sound like a commercial here, but for the first time I realized what it really means when an event is made possible by sponsors.

Enjoy some pictures from our fun weekend.

 This is the group, Sideswipe.  They combine martial arts with gymnastics and
 it was very entertaining to watch their performance.  
 The three chefs from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.  l to r Dimitri, Hodad and Johnny Brava
 The Kelly Bell Band.  This guys were fantastic!  Vic and I enjoyed every bit of
their concert.  They are scheduled to return at another time and we will  most
definitely be watching them again.  They played a mix of music including jazz, funk and blues.
Some of the delicious food that was prepared by the chefs.  So yum!
