Call the office at (706)354-4111, or send a note to Navy Supply Corps Foundation, PO Box 6228, Athens, GA 30604 to let them know how you want to receive The Oakleaf.
The goal is to have a much smaller mailing list and more people reading The Oakleaf online by mid 2014. Opting out of the paper copy will help the Foundation save money by cutting mailing and printing costs. Keeping in touch with the Supply Corps community is paramount to the Foundation. Maintaining accurate information is critical. You can help by keeping your account up to date online or by notifying the Foundation office of changes. Stay in touch!

Surrounded by approximately 150 employees, volunteers and donors, new Foundation Chair Bobby Heath and Tammy Gilland, Vice President for Development of the Foundation, talked about the work it took to make the house a home for the Foundation. Special note was made of the entire Engineering Services team for their outstanding work. Gilland quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson who said, “The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.” She added, “Our guests are what make this little house a home.”
Sapera, who is known for his loyalty, determination, passion, enthusiasm, and spirit, talked about the Five Keys to Success - our volunteers, our donors, our employees, our community, and our projects – The Guest House, the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support and The Griffin-DuBose Healing Lodge, the Breast Health Center and the NICU, all opened during his tenure.
His friend and former ARHS President and CEO John Drew then related the sixth key success - leadership. “For our Foundation over the past 23 years, our “secret sauce” that keeps it all together has been Len Sapera. Len, as a senior naval officer, came to us with the experience to bring it all together but most importantly, the desire and passion to make “every tomorrow, for everyone better than today or yesterday”.
Athens Regional Health System President and CEO Jamey Thaw and Athens Regional Health Services Board Chair Marilyn Farmer then presented Sapera with a proclamation naming and dedicating the house the Leonard J. Sapera Building. Surrounded by his wife Eileen, his three children, son-in-law and three of his grandchildren, Len expressed his love of Athens Regional and appreciation for the honor.
The Athens Regional Foundation provides a link between Athens Regional Medical Center and the people of the Athens community to assure quality healthcare services are available locally when they need them.
The U.S. Navy Supply Corps Foundation exists to perpetuate the values, traditions, and history of the Supply Corps throughout the lives of individuals in the Supply Corps community.
