The Sheppard Military Affairs Committee hosted an event at the MPEC on Wednesday evening to give community leaders an opportunity to show their support and appreciation to Sheppard Air Force Base.
The theme was "Under the Western Sky".
The committee says it's a way of saying thanks to Sheppard and its airmen for what they do everyday.
SMAC officials want to showcase one of the committee's functions, which is improving the community's relationship with the base.
"Our whole goal is to strengthen the community's support of Sheppard and therefore strengthen Sheppard Air Force Base and make it a more valuable base to the military so that we don't lose any more missions."
