4th Annual Eggs on the Beach
Egg Fest anyone? You betcha! This was arguably the best "Eggs" yet. The level of food just keeps getting better as teams are bringing their A+ game to "Eggs." With a record number of teams and tasters enjoying the Southern Garden Party vibe, this year's event received a record $14,500 for Fisher House and Food for Thought. Wayne and Susan do a great job hosting and pouring back into the community. Thanks to Dom, from Clemenza's who was one of the judges! Looking forward to an even better Eggs next year. Susan and Wayne Kiley are THE BEST!

Words from our Guests
"We are so grateful for the hospitality of everyone here at Fisher House. We've met some very awesome folks and will always appreciate our military family. Thank you for the comfort of this wonderful place in our time of need."
"On June 18th, my husband was hospitalized with meningitis. His diagnosis was poor. We were from Georgia and our kids came right away. We were so fortunate to hear about Fisher House which provided for us until July 5th when my husband was transferred to Emory. Words cannot express our gratitude during this frightening time. He is home now and doing better every day. May God continue to bless you and this ministry. What a blessing you were to us."

Farewell Richard and Donna Dick
After retiring from the Navy, Richard Dick joined the board of Fisher House. He is credited for starting our speakers bureau, creating the presentation that is still used today and was a regular sharing the Fisher House mission to the newcomers at Hurlburt every two weeks. He and his wife Donna volunteered for many events and this past spring, made a decision to sell the farm and move south. While they didn't really have a farm, they were big supporters and will be missed, especially Richard's great sense of humor and quick wit. We wish them well on this next adventure.
Welcome Bryan Creager
Chief Master Sgt. Brian Creager, USAF, Retired joined our board after his retirement from the 96 Test Wing as Command Chief in April of this year. He served for 30 years and he shared that "making Chief was one of the most humbling experiences ever, but I also committed to working hard every day to make things better for my people. You can never forget where you came from or the fact somebody helped get you to where you are. " We are fortunate to have Bryan's experience leading people and his service before self style with our mission to serve our military families during medical events.
