BEALE AIR FORCE BASE, Cali. --
Beale held its first Recce Connect Day, a day where the Recce community came together to connect with one another, discover resources, and feel included in the community.
The goal of Recce Connect Day is to help unify the people of Beale and provide the chance to learn more about the opportunities and experiences that are available.
“It’s a starting point where we are mainly focusing on our professional organizations, our helping agencies and some of our clubs showcasing what they have to offer our Airmen and families,” said Tamie Harvey, the 9th Reconnaissance Wing Violence Prevention Integrator and Suicide Prevention Program manager.
Recce Connect Day had over 30 organizations, including helping agencies and clubs participating in the event. It is a chance to introduce what they do and how they support Beale AFB and give people the opportunity to get more involved with events.
“I think one of the challenges that Beale has is that there are a lot of organizations that do great things, but they do them somewhat focused for a particular audience,” said Master Sgt. Yvette Cabadas, 9th Reconnaissance Wing Diversity and Inclusion manager. “Having that conversation to meet in the middle is our goal.”
Recce Connect Day is an opportunity to eliminate the isolation on the base. It is an event where you can join a club, meet others and grow together as a community. The organizations and groups invited had tables set up where everyone can walk around and look at what every group has to offer.
“My guidance to them was to use it as a career fair type of perspective,” Cabadas said. “So come get to know your council. Get to know your presidents. Get to know your teams that are actively trying to make this community stronger.”
